Well, this might be kind of obvious, but "man tuning"

Also, since freebsd-4 is still the official -stable release, you should
definitely benchmark 4.8 or 4-stable (cvs tag RELENG_4).

Also, since -current is such a moving target (on all the bsd's), you
should publish the exact date at which you cvsup'ed along with your
results.  Just saying 5-current isn't very descriptive, as major major
changes can take place on that branch from one day to the next.


 Freud himself was a bit of a cold fish, and one cannot avoid the suspicion
 that he was insufficiently fondled when he was an infant.
