Is there a different, more detailed, description of
its effects (and/or similar tuning parameters) than found in

Is there a way to limit the runningspace, bufspace, or similar parameters
on a per disk, per process, or per file basis rather than system wide?
I haven't been able to find anything.

I need a way to protect the disk I/O bandwidth of one process from
other processes.  Having its own disk, and running at rtprio is not

IMHO no, while it could be useful.

priority schedules only CPU usage.

BTW - if you are processing huge files often consider editing /usr/src/sys/sys/param.h

and change

#define MAXPHYS         (128 * 1024)   /* max raw I/O transfer size */


#define MAXPHYS         (1024 * 1024)   /* max raw I/O transfer size */

it won't make disk I/O scheduling better (even a bit worse) but will GREATLY speed up huge file I/O. bump hi and lorunning space at least twice the default (4 and 2MB) maybe more if you have many concurrent disks.

i'm using that settings on every FreeBSD machine, no problems.

when making new filesystem set -a option right when doing newfs (read man).

PS. it's not answer for your question but it may help either
