Man! It's a privilege to do stuff in the # and # communities - that are just ... awesome
I had made a pretty stupid error when it came to hosts on Bhyve. I asked a (hopefully) clear question, and the FreeBSD community answered it (make sure vfs.zfs.arc_max is <=1/4 total system memory) really quickly, and clearly! While also being good at asking questions, and kind.

the main reason I never do this in the OpenBSD community is because I've almost never encountered an undocumented problem.

Getting better at documentation is one of my goals for the year, and helping both projects is a goal.

Sadly, one of my main goals as a sysadmin is to never do anything exciting - so I don't end up in novel or surprising situations much to help.
I think it's mostly for bhyve guests, since they have less insight into the system, and so if you have a few, it can cause you problems. But yeah - might be good in a man page somewhere - the main question is - which one would surface it best.

Hmmm - gonna think about that and then submit a patch I guess.

Hey # people, especially # people
I am new to using FreeBSD super actively, and I am noticing if I do transfers of lots (10ishGB) of small (under 5MB) files between VMs on Bhyves (using SSH) on ZFS, I crash the server - is this known?

I am going to ask, and someone is gonna tell me that it's boringly easy to # a disk into #. But I don't know what it is yet.

Thanks @raichoo for the high quality presentation you made (I was in the devroom :) . I've been using CWM by the past, there's a fresh touch to it with more features and XCB. Also thanks showing your enthusiasm on wayland concepts and benefits. I hope you'll get feedback and contribution to this version as well!
Cheers

Thanks for your feedback :D
Yeah - people are jumping on Wayland WAY too early. But it looks like they are doing cool things.

I think it's the right time to start moving towards wayland. At least for most people it does everything they need (which includes me). And more stuff will come eventually.
I guess I am fairly jittery about using too bleeding edge of software

Security and sysadmin make you very conservative in your approach

That is understandable. On Linux I wouldn't consider wayland to be that much of a bleeding edge. On BSD it still somewhat is (but we are getting there slowly :D). YMMV though.
