I would like to know well soft updates are working on low-end Sun
I've been running 1.4.2 on an SS5, and it is very reliable and
handles a decent load. My current SS5 runs news, mail, and Postres
database servers. I could use a boost in file system performance
and was curious how much soft updates helped a machine like this.
It seems dramatic on FreeBSD for Intel (for some things), but I've
not found anything yet regarding it's affect on a NetBSD sparcstation.
