Hi, As a newbie to FreeBSD, I may be way off base, but it seems very logical to me that the size of your drive or partition would make a difference on at what percentage full one would start to notice problems.
In terms of megs/gigs 80% of 120 gigs still has a lot of work space left. 80% of 4 gigs is not much. I would think with a larger drive/partition, one could run at a higher percentage before trouble started. It makes sense to me anyway :) Scott | It is mentioned as a recommendation. It | is not an absolute. Do a little searching | and you will probably find some | references. We have some that run in to | the 90-s most of the time too. It depends | on what you are actually doing. If it is | a fairly stable collection of data that | doesn't get a lot written to it most of | the time, it shouldn't matter. If it is | very volatile - lots of files come and go, | then it could make a bigger difference. | Unless it gets to the 100% mark (except | for root) with that 100% being with the | set-aside already taken out, it shouldn't | cause anything to crash. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
