I've seen no problems at all. This is cvsup.nz.freebsd.org:
[dan@cvsup:/usr/home/dan] $ sysctl vfs.vmiodirenable
1:29AM up 27 days, 14:06, 1 user, load averages: 0.00, 0.02, 0.05
As for how highly stressed this box is:
$ zgrep -c "\+" cvsupd.log*
It's a P120 with 64MB of RAM... I can't comment on the performance
boost. Merely that it's been stable.
