I did an experiment on my 5.3-STABLE, I recompiled the kernel to support
geom_bde crypto file system. Then followed the handbook
except that I didn't have a separate partition, so I created a memory
file system and succesfully attached and mounted that.
So I wanted to see if the "disk" was actually encrypted with less on the
file. No clue, just ^@.
Ok, then I saw the uptime, and it has never been higher. I thought maybe
some operation was pending and unmounted and detached the memory disk.
But since then I get this output:
5:21pm up 1:27, 1 user, load averages: 6.70, 604.19, 947.57
5:21pm up 1:27, 1 user, load averages: 648.43, 515.02, 914.09
5:22pm up 1:28, 1 user, load averages: 825.09, 309.29, 460.63
5:22pm up 1:29, 1 user, load averages: 368.88, 223.28, 429.38
5:22pm up 1:29, 1 user, load averages: 972.71, 138.59, 398.28
5:22pm up 1:29, 1 user, load averages: 503.40, 55.14, 367.31
I rebooted, no more playing with encrypted file systems, yet I get:
5:28pm up 50 secs, 1 user, load averages: 796.30, 990.13, 1011.98
5:29pm up 55 secs, 1 user, load averages: 732.21, 973.63, 1006.03
5:29pm up 58 secs, 1 user, load averages: 673.26, 957.40, 1000.11
Usually I have load average of 0.01 or so. Any explanation on this?
