I've been facing a problem for a while. My system sometimes suddenly reboots by itself. I thought my surge protector was ruined and bought another one. But finally I found out that FreeBSD file system is corrupted. This happened to me so many times and it was really annoying.
I (almost) solved...
Why not ZFS by default?
Images are compressed before distribution. I assume that compression is very effective for:
non-used space (free, never used) in file systems
non-used swap space.
Why is there so little free space in the file system for the base OS?
Why is so little of the disk given...
Today morning my home server decided to restart for some reason. After coming up in single user mode, was able to fsck other file systems, but not the data disk:
pid 64 (fsck_ufs), jid 0, uid 0: exited on signal 8
fsck: /dev/da0p1: Floating point exception
da0p1 is 33TB RAID6 disk (8x6TB). I...
I have several servers with large UFS partitions (>100TB).
Physically it is RAID-6 on MegaRaid 9361.
If i try to run fsck on them, i get same error on all servers:
** Phase 5 - Check Cyl groups
fsck_ffs: inoinfo: inumber 18446744071562087424 out of range
inumber is exact same on...
After a force restart, the (mounted) [ext4] filesystems became unaccessable,
- on FreeBSD-12.1,
- using ext2fs kernel module.
The [ext4] filesystems became not mountable (by superuser),
The error message was: "mount: /dev/... : Operation not permitted"
As fsck (standard) does not work on ext...

I have a USB2, external hard drive, formatted under UFS. It was working perfectly, but after an electric black out, im not able to mount or fsck the external drive anymore.

I'm a FreeBSD newbie. I did a foolish thing and resized my root UFS partition using growfs in single-user mode. Now every time I boot, it says:
"Starting filesystem checks:
/dev/ada0s1a: CANNOT READ BLK: 29497600
/dev/ada0s1a: UNEXPECTED CONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY.
I briefly looked at the net for information about SSDs (Solid State Drives) and freeBSD and found only confusing articles on the subject. Obviously it is not the fault of the authors it's just that I am not well versed on hardware.
Anyway I decided to put my queries here as I have a project on...
This is the first time I could not resolve an issue by checking the information that is somewhere in forums or handbooks, so I really hope for your help on this:
I have a hardware machine that runs release 11p6. The filesystem is ZFS on two SSDs in mirror mode.
On this machine I have 4...
