    13.0 - where is /dev/diskid?

    #sysctl kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable: 1 #ls /dev/diskid ls: /dev/diskid: No such file or directory I didn't change the value of kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable. It was on by default.

    net.inet.tcp.recvbuf_inc removed?

    Hi there. Under FreeBSD 13, the command "sysctl net.inet.tcp.sendbuf_inc" replies as; net.inet.tcp.sendbuf_inc: 8192 However, "sysctl net.inet.tcp.recvbuf_inc" says; sysctl: unknown oid 'net.inet.tcp.recvbuf_inc' Any idea why it doesn't exist? Is such parameter removed in FreeBSD 13? If so...

    Non-root users can change hw.snd.default_unit sysctl

    I'm a little perplexed to have accidentally found that non-root users (even ones denied access to /dev/mixer) can adjust hw.snd.default_unit. I assume non-root users can adjust some other sysctls. I thought sysctl would have been restricted entirely to root. I would appreciate any insight here...

    ZFS High CPU on snapshot destroy

    I have a PostgreSQL DB server running 10.3 and anytime I prune snapshots, the CPU spikes and I see database timeouts. Is there a sysctl tunable that effects the priority of snapshot deletion? I was looking at the vfs.zfs.vdev.(sync|async|scrub)_* parameters, but it isn't clear to me whether...
