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...
My main questions are:
- What is the best way to clear a ZFS encrypted swap if it fills up?
- If we allocate swap space at the rate of twice the available RAM, then how will we have enough memory to clear the swap?
It seems like, during a situation where we intervene to maintenance or clear...
I don't know if I'm in the right place.
I need your advice and your know-how.
I would like to reduce my partition from 924G to 916G and increase the swap from 8G to 16G.

The FreeBSD Wiki says:
The FreeBSD Manual explains Suspend/Resume and mentions S4BIOS and S4OS, but doesn't tell any more.
So I assume this is still valid, no Suspend-to-Disk (STD/S4OS) available in FreeBSD?
I have already tried, acpiconf -s 4 seemingly puts my laptop into hibernation, but...
I had a virtual machine with limited RAM(4GB RAM+4GB swap partition,and 90M swap used). When I connect to it,some service might suffer tremendous lag for initial response(about 7-8sec). But once I got initial response,the following activity seems just fine. So I suspect that some process had...
Greetings to everyone.
Here is my problem :
I just upgraded my workstation, from AMD FX 6300 to AMD Opteron 6380, everything runs fine on my FreeBSD 12.0 p10, except that my swap completely disappear. It is a real problem since I have only 8GB of ram for now on ZFS. Before I used to have 32GB...
I'm doing my first install of FreeBSD and really looking forward to getting started with FreeBSD. I've recently purchase a copy of 'Absolute FreeBSD' and I'm working my way through the chapters. While I've previously used FreeBSD inside VirtualBox, this time I'm doing my first physcial...
Is there an option under FreeBSD that enables us to use swap under this exact circumstances (retrieved from a general OS forum) :
* vm.swappiness = 0 The kernel will swap only to avoid an out of memory condition, when free memory will be below vm.min_free_kbytes limit.

Nov 22 18:48:07 uninspiredhostname kernel: swap_pager_getswapspace(number): fail
Previous message repeated countless times.
So I'm building stuff in Poudriere and this keeps happening... I thought it was a bad RAM block...
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.
* consumption *
We've 96 GB memory and I can see that 76 GB is wired and there's also total ARC 69 GB already occupied. My question is, if FreeBSD requires additional memory for processes will wired/ARC release the memory for FreeBSD usage to prevent swap usage? Since 12 GB is only free. Will OS start...
I'm trying to pinpoint what process(es) is eating swap on my FreeBSD server.
I can only see how much is being used (top) but not what process is swapping its guts out.
I tried searching Google for this but didn't find anything.
Is there a way to display list of swapped data by process...
