So, if I want to increase this limit to, say, 64M of kernel memory, I
can do this with
That is, what units is this in? I'm guessing 2048 (cluster size)
also, how does that interact with NKMEMCLUSTERS=?

This is the number I have now, and it runs out of memory pretty fast.
When looking at the memory stats, the "Memory statistics by type" has
a limit of 19661K. Does this mean the pool system gets up to that
much space? I don't mind giving the kernel 1/4th of my ram if it
makes it able to handle a few thousand connections, but I'd rather not
throw 64M at it then find out it won't help.
