Let me preface these remarks with a comment to set the tone.
This is not an attempt at starting a religous war a la
linux vs FreeBSD.
I suspect what I see is the result of poor or misguided configs on my
part but have no clue what things to look at.
Turn softupdates on.
Possibly also turn write caching on if it is off.
OK, thanks Daniel. Look like good clues. I'm eager to try them out.
Do you think these things will improve things quite noticably?
I can't test it just now as I'm rsyncing some 600mb of mail and news
across from my desktop. (Leaving town in the morning) and that will
take a while. But looking at the man pages its hard to get an idea
how much of improvement this might make.
