Hey there, I've been asking these questions to the wrong list! Just found the xen list, so I'll recap here.
I want to run amd64 on xen, at a VPS hosting provider. Due to cost constraints the sweet spot in the cost/memory ratio has given me a provider who will only support a "ops_pv" kernel. This means that XENHVM on amd64 is not available to me. The VPS provider will be giving me at least 6 gb of ram, and I want to run ZFS on the instance. This leaves me considering running the i386 kernel and relying on PAE to get access to the extra memory. I presume that I'll lose about 1.5-2gb of RAM to ZFS tuning, and hope that means that I'll have 4gb(-ish) available to userland processes. Is this a sensible assumption? Can I rely on this being a stable configuration, or am I high?! :) Thanks, Joe _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-xen To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-xen-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
