FreeBSD agathon.localdomain 7.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE #0: Fri May  1 07:18:07 UTC 2009     root at  amd64
The file /boot/default/loader.conf contains the following line:

#kern.hz="100"                  # Set the kernel interval timer rate

which would imply that unless a different value is set in /boot/loader.conf, the system should use a 100 hz rate by default. This however is not true (at least on amd64), by default the system uses a 1000 hz rate and a simple act of copying /boot/default/loader.conf to /boot/ and uncommenting the kern.hz line will change system behavior.
