Greeting Beastly Gents! Your show has helped me quite a bit over the years! I've gone from being a knucklehead project manager to a paying gig as a Linux admin/engineer and a side-job as a FreeBSD admin. (still a knucklehead though :) My google-fu or rather, duckduckgo-do has failed me at finding performance tuning tips for mariadb as a data store for a php7 web app on freebsd. We're running a few small sites in jails on UFS. The mariadb docs only have some general suggestions, which aren't super helpful. I did notice that there are one or two packages in the ports collections that can make suggestions on performance tuning, but I wasnt sure if how accurate they were. Can you give me an idea on how to start? One other Q - what's the best source of documentation on kernel tunables and sysctl's for FreeBSD? Thanks for the help, Zach PS - Do you ever get tired of answering ZFS questions?
