I'm using a Dell M4400 as my poudriere oven to compile all my ports.
This M4400 has a DVD cartridge in a bay which can be ejected and replaced
by another cartridge containing now a new 250 GByte SSD and which shows
up as ada1 in dmesg (ada0 is the old internal hard disk with the

ada0 at ahcich0 bus 0 scbus2 target 0 lun 0
ada0: <Hitachi HTS723225L9A362 FCDOC30F> ATA8-ACS SATA 2.x device
ada0: Serial Number 090216FC3D00NJG3ZWED
ada0: 300.000MB/s transfers (SATA 2.x, UDMA6, PIO 8192bytes)
ada0: Command Queueing enabled
ada0: 238475MB (488397168 512 byte sectors)

ada1: Command Queueing enabled
ada1: 238475MB (488397168 512 byte sectors)
ada1: quirks=0x1<4K>

I have all my pordriere ports, jails and data below a top level dir
/usr/local/poudriere , some 34 GByte as shown below. My idea is move
them and also /usr/ports/disfiles to the SSD, perhaps the distfiles as
/usr/local/poudriere/disfiles and a symlink from /usr/ports/distfiles to
this new dir.

My questions is: what would be best form to format ada1 to a files
system for this to get most speed out of it?
