Yes, this is what I will do; if not benchmark, at least get a subjective feel
for which is faster.
Sorry to be a pest, but how can I do what you suggest? My SWAP0 is a
_partition_ on the raid0 volume , and SWAP1 is a swapfile on raid1 created
as a Vnode; and activated in rc.conf by "swapfile="/raid1/swap1"
How can I tell FreeBSD to ignore the primary swap partition? I set that
partition up during the online install process if I recall, and none of
my /etc/ files seem to reference it directly :-(
I will also want to double the size of SWAP1 to 2GB, so the experiment is
comparing the same swap space; but that part is simplistic.
