kernel panic when accessing /dev/tap0

  Hi,

Robert Watson described a problem in this discussion: 
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2006-May/025880.html
Currently I'm experiencing a similar problem, but on amd64 and FreeBSD 
8.1 Release. Accessing /dev/tap0 instantly results in a kernel panic, so 
it's most likely if_tap related. Is this a known problem? I've started 
encountering it ever since I rebuilt my kernel with "options vimage".

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
cpuid = 1; apic id = 01
fault virtual address = 0x28

If more debugging information is required I will gladly provide it.

Frank Razenberg

Tuning the scheduler? Desktop with a CPU-intensive task becomes rapidly unusable.

I'm running -STABLE with a kde-derived desktop. This setup (which is 
pretty standard) is providing abysmal interactive performance on an 
eight-core machine whenever I try to do anything CPU-intensive (such as 
building a port).

Basically, trying to build anything from ports rapidly renders everything 
else so "non-interactive" in the eyes of the scheduler that, for instance, 
switching between virtual desktops (I have six of them in reasonably 
frequent use) takes about a minute of painful waiting on redraws to 
complete.

Once I pay attention to any particular window, the scheduler rapidly 
(like, in 15 agonising seconds or so) decides that the processes 
associated with that particular window are "interactive" and performance 
there picks up again. But it only takes 10 seconds (not timed; ballpark 
figures) or so of inattention for a window's processes to lapse back into 
a low-priority state, with the attendant performance problems.

I don't think my desktop usage is particularly abnormal; I doubt my level 
of frustration is, either :-) I think the issue here is that a modern 
desktop has quite a lot of associated processes, and you can't keep them 
all sufficiently "interactive" in the eyes of sched_ule to ensure they 
stay responsive.

Are there particular tunables associated with sched_ule (the manpage says 
not) that I might look at to try to address this? Or process flags I can 
set on my desktop tasks to keep them nearer the interactive end of the 
spectrum?

Claimed is:

I thought this was fixed already but maybe only in HEAD and not
merged.  I'll go and look.

Why is NFSv4 so slow?

Hi everyone,

I am experiencing similar issues with newnfs:

1) I have two clients that each get around 0.5MiB/s to 2.6MiB/s reading 
from the NFS4-share on Gbit-Lan

2) Mounting with -t newnfs -o nfsv3 results in no performance gain 
whatsoever.

3) Mounting with -t nfs results in 58MiB/s ! (Netcat has similar 
performance) → not a hardware/driver issue from my pov

Is there anything I can do to help fix this?

Thank you,

this is expected.  I have a work in progress fix in perforce for
most/all cloned interfaces.  It's only a matter of extracting patches
now but it'll be anohter few days till I'll get to that.

PS: freebsd-virtualization <at>  might be the better place to post VIMAGE
