Have you noticed MISSING count increasing over time or you just looking
at this exact calculation?
This script is far from being perfect and I don't know as much about
FreeBSD internals to calculate it to show exactly zero at this point (if
it is possible at all).
It only calculates physical memory minus memory pools visible in top(1),
and on my system it gives MISSING count about 36MB just after reboot.
What's important - check if this variable is stable over time. You can
confirm memory leakage if MISSING is increasing over time or while using
sendfile. You can try for instance 'sh memleak-detect.sh -m -r 60' to
check it every one minute.
