Automatic tuning for ZFS on i386

Component: Installer Version: 7-BETA1
Keywords: zfs, i386 Cc: trac-bugs@…

Description

Would it be possible to have the installer auto-tune the kernel and other requirements for ZFS on i386? Perhaps this option could set up the parameters dynamically based on the target system's memory?
Another possibility could be to have separate optional kernel(s) pre-tuned when ZFS is selected?

On 8.0 and beyond there really isn't very much kernel tuning to do anymore. However, it is recommended to run ZFS on amd64, since even with i386 all tweaked out, its still possible to have memory related crashes, whereas amd64 keeps on chugging :)

Marking this as invalid for now.
