| I have a new i386 tindy machine with 2 x Xeon and 6 GB RAM, but 2 ATA
| disks. http://sce-tindy.tecnik93.com/div/dmesg
| Besides being a tinderbox it doesn't do much, at least for now.
| While building ports, I didn't saw the load being more that 0.30-0.40.
| Since the main bottleneck is HDD access I was thinking about using a
| 3-4GB swap-backed WRKDIR. Is it possible to configure tinderbox to use
| a custom WRKIDRPREFIX ?
you could create a /big-md-disk and mount_nullfs /big-md-disk/wrkdir1
