Now I'm using FreeBSD 9 without swap, and without additional swap -
Ξ ~ → gpart show
=> 34 234441581 ada0 GPT (111G)
34 128 1 freebsd-boot (64k)
162 234441453 2 freebsd-zfs (111G)
Ξ ~ → pstat -T
0M/0M swap space
And all work perfectly or that seems to me :).
My working machine is ThinkPad T61 with 4G ram.
I'm typically desktop user.
And the question is:
Does it correct to use freebsd like this? Or I need specific setup?
Option NO_SWAPPING if I understand right not for this purpose.
Sysctl vm.swap_enabled=0 seems to be useful.
