That's good to know Dave. Thanks. I created a short-name script a
while back with "echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches" merely so I could
"clear the baffles" now and then. Looks like it now has multiple uses
(if I can just remember to use it in this context).
Out of curiosity, who here schedules automatic xfs_fsr runs, and with
what frequency? Currently I just run it manually now and then when
performance starts to seem sluggish.
