I've been using it just for the /usr/ports on my i386 laptop for a while (dual core T2300 @ 1.66GHz with 1 gig Ram:)
([EMAIL PROTECTED])$sudo zpool history tank History for 'tank': 2007-04-11.10:45:56 zpool create tank ad0s4a 2007-04-11.10:46:35 zfs create tank/ports 2007-04-11.10:47:06 zfs set compression=gzip tank/ports 2007-04-11.10:53:29 zfs set mountpoint=/usr/ports tank/ports 2007-05-11.09:31:37 zpool scrub tank 2007-08-08.12:31:44 zpool scrub tank 2007-08-09.14:51:52 zfs set atime=off tank with no issues. With appropriate tuning I also now run my home server (personal email server, samba and nfs server for music/video/documents) which is again i386 with 3 gigs memory with /usr and /var on zfs mirrors. for this I did have to set kern.maxvnodes=40000 vfs.zfs.zil_disable="1" vfs.zfs.prefetch_disable="1" vfs.zfs.arc_max="83886080" vm.kmem_size_max="536870912" for it to survive a portsnap fetch && portsnap extract without running out of kernel memory. since then its run with no issues. I'm told that FreeBSD/amd64 is a better choice for zfs though as "with a 32bit kernel you are more likely to experience problems with KVA shortage than you are RAM shortage when using ZFS." Also see the thread starting: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2007-June/073972.html for reports from people using it (back in zune true but its only going to have improved since :) Vince Wojciech Puchar wrote: > on FreeBSD 7.0 > > i mean is it stable enough to be used on FreeBSD/amd64 > > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
