phoenix said:KVA_PAGES gets mutilplied by 4 to come to the number of KB to use for kernel memory. Using KVA_PAGES=512 means 2 GB of kernel memory space. If you run with this setting, with only 1.5 GB of RAM, you will run into issues, unless you have a lot of non-ZFS disk space set up for swap.
How can it be 2GB when i have clearly set kmem_max to 1G.
And when i booted, it showed 1G
I have 6G swap, just in case
Without KVA_PAGES i can't have more than 512MB kernel memoryphoenix said:Unless you have over 2 GB of memory, don't mess with KVA_PAGES.
I will try to set it to lower number next time.
anyway, i somehow messed things up.
I didn't export data pool. I simply destroyed it and added sata disk to sys pool. In the end i have panics.
Managed to avoid panics, when I boot from FreeBSD-8-current cd, and import and export ZFS pool. Then i restart and i can imports sys pool.
However sometimes I can see Data pool (corrupted. lol). and when PC crashes, i have to boot from FreeBSD-8-Current cd, again.
For a few minutes i thought i lost my music collection....
Now i only need to transfer it to laptop....
After that, tomorrow, I will try to Install FreeBSD-8-Current.
Yup, it's so good, i can't refuse myself to go trough all the mambo jumbo, to get it work for everything.bigboss said:But even with all these problems I think ZFS worthies the work because it is so promising, powerful and simple.
Best of all, it's always consistent, no mater how many times my PC crashes.
