I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions regarding optimally tuning
these parameters
for desktop+development use.  I've noticed lately that, using the
defaults, my system
is paging out to disk a lot even though it really shouldn't be--though
I'm not sure if this
is due to something in -current, as I haven't had this problem much in the past.
I have 1GB of RAM.  anon/exec/file min/max of: {10,0,0}{80,2,1} has
been useful to me
in the past, but that doesn't seem to do the trick anymore.  I got
that from a thread
on tech-kern from a few years ago, posted by soda IIRC.
