Reading the archives, it seems as if you would use growfs, but then run
into performance problems because you did not defragment afterward (and
there is no defrag utility for UFS).

Something about the performance getting worse and worse as you filled up
the grown FS, since the "go get some free space" algorithm would fail a
lot more since the first half of the disk would be packed full, and the
space you grew on would not be ?

comments ?
