            Bug ID: 231457
           Summary: Out of swap space on ZFS
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.2-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: dimka at dz.dn.ua

After occupying all RAM and several hundred megabytes of swap space, the kernel
kills large processes with the messages:

Sep 14 03:04:30 hosting kernel: pid 2078 (mysqld), uid 88, was killed: out of
swap space
Sep 14 03:06:26 hosting kernel: pid 7068 (mysqld), uid 88, was killed: out of
swap space
Sep 14 03:06:32 hosting kernel: pid 2085 (clamd), uid 106, was killed: out of
swap space

Tested on 3 real and 1 virtual machine with 1/2/4GB RAM and 8GB swap volume, on
I NOT check this on 11.0-RELEASE and 11.1-RELEASE.

It's like another bug
but I never reached this bug on 10.*/amd64, and advice for volume/sysctl
tunings from his discussion, did not help for me on 11.2/amd64.

Detailed installation procedure

# Boot from install DVD, select "Shell" in "Partitioning" menu.
# gnop create -S 4096 /dev/ada0
# zpool create -O mountpoint=none zroot /dev/ada0.nop
# zfs create -V 8GB -o org.freebsd:swap=on zroot/swap
# zfs create -o quota=2GB -o mountpoint=/mnt zroot/root
# zfs create -o quota=15GB -o mountpoint=/mnt/tmp zroot/tmp
# zfs create -o quota=30GB -o mountpoint=/mnt/var zroot/var
# zfs create -o quota=30GB -o mountpoint=/mnt/usr zroot/usr
# zfs create -o quota=15GB -o mountpoint=/mnt/home zroot/home
# zpool export zroot
# gnop destroy /dev/ada0.nop
# dd if=/boot/zfsboot of=/dev/ada0 bs=512 count=1
# dd if=/boot/zfsboot of=/dev/ada0 bs=512 skip=1 seek=1024
# zpool import zroot
# exit
# Post-install, select "Live CD" mode.
# echo zfs_enable=\"YES\" >> /nmt/etc/rc.conf
# zfs umount -a
# zfs set mountpoint=legacy zroot/root
# zfs set mountpoint=/tmp zroot/tmp
# zfs set mountpoint=/var zroot/var
# zfs set mountpoint=/usr zroot/usr
# zfs set mountpoint=/home zroot/home
# zpool set bootfs=zroot/root zroot
# exit
