In creating a geli encrypted drive, I tried using a sector size of 8K, but experienced random panics. I've now switched to 4K and am using bonnie to stability test the partition.
Is anyone aware of stability issues with geli partitions with blocks larger than 4K? The docs indicate that larger block sizes result in better performance, but make no mention of upper limits. The handbook specifically mentions 4K, which is why I backed down to that size: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/disks-encrypting.html I suppose this could also be a UFS2 issue? -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
