Background fsck does not work well with big filesystems, it can literaly

server in single user mode and do "fsck -y" because while it means
downtime, but after this downtime server will work ... while background
fsck eats all server memory and most of CPU.

I'm very happy, that I dont need do this often :-)

If I remember the postings or news from a while back right, someone is porting ZFS from OpenSolaris to FreeBSD(?). I will be glad when this happens. I have been playing with ZFS on a Solaris machine and it is majorly cool. Goodbye fsck and Hello ease of use and performance.
