I wasn’t really sure where to put this as it is really about memory, FreeBSD, and zfs.
I’ve generally let memory manage itself on my 8gb machine, but now I’m moving to 32gb and I don’t really know how to maximize the utility of all that memory. Do I just let it manage itself or do I carve out...
There's nice, and renice but any instructions I saw applied after a program is identified as being a runaway process. Is there a way to make a program or group be pre-determinately set to have a lower priority nice option? Adding the nice command to the menu item that launches an application...
This is for the RES (resident memory) RAM usage of window managers (from my computer in August 2021). The top command was used to get these numbers.

I bought and replaced some new memory cards (PC4-25600) for a notebook PC (NEC, purchased in Japan) already running FreeBSD. The RAM cards fitted perfected into the slots. However, upon turning on, FreeBSD does not boot up and the screen is blank. I don't think it is even getting through the...
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...
Greetings to everyone.
I post here because I wanted to get an answer about something I found weird. I run 12.0-RELEASE-p7 GENERIC amd64 as my main desktop machine using KDE-5, and by checking ram usage with some app, I get different results, here's a screenshot of the issue :
Hi , i'am not speak english , i'ts not my language , so sorry by mistakes in english.
The title of this topic is my question , i'am a user of arch and that system Rolling Realese is awesome to keep the ram on 400MB~ using i3wm with chromium and others applications.
I'm testing the FreeBSD on a...
Notably compression may be handled differently between the two, however wanted to know if anyone has reference or opinion as to whether one would expect these two issues that I've noticed: 1) difference in "consumption" and 2) constant creeping into swap space.

I am new to FreeBSD and have recently installed it on my Laptop that has 16 Gb of ram. I chose to use ZFS for the hdd and installed mate for my desktop environment. I've noticed that at times the machine will be using over 90 percent of the ram ... typically after I've mounted and external hard...
