NVNODE defaults to (NPROC + NTEXT + 100), which is generally
way too small on a machine running in any kind of fileserving
capacity. It can be set in a kernel config, but that can make
sharing a kernel between machines with widely different memory
What do people think of a BUFCACHE like value which would allow
you to pick a percentage of memory to use for NVNODE?
Thoughts for a sane name? :)
since ubc, i've been running with NVNODE=(4*((NPROC + NTEXT + 100)).
it seems like a much more sensible default...
