arc_c_max and arc_c_min are used for different things. If you make significant changes there, then it is a good idea to set both zfs_arc_min, zfs_arc_max, and zfs_arc_meta_limit as a set. NB, the minimum size of these is 64MB. -- richard -- ZFS Performance and Training richard.ell...@richardelling.com +1-760-896-4422
