First, I'd like to thank the following folks:
email@example.com (Matthew Stier)
"Christopher M. Conway" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Francis Liu <email@example.com>
Tom Mornini <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Mark Belanger <email@example.com>
Tom Henning <firstname.lastname@example.org>
email@example.com (David Mitchell)
"Mitchell, Andrew" <mitcheah@RYH1BT.BT.CO.UK>
firstname.lastname@example.org (Niall O Broin)
If I've forgotten someone, sorry -- it's solely due to an error in cut &
I've been informed by all these folks that by default UFS reserves 10% of
all drive space to be used by Root only. Altho it is mentioned in the man
page, it is done in a very vague manner, and is not easily apparent if this
particular feature of UFS is not known.
As of right now, I'm losing over 800Meg of a 9-gig drive for news due to
this feature, so I plan on changing the default 10% to 1%.
Several folks also informed me on how this is done, and here's the
appropriate commands for such:
# umount /usr/local/news/spool
# tunefs -m 1 -o time /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s0
# mount /usr/local/news/spool
The extra 800 Megs will come in very handy, and again, I thank everyone on
this list -- especially those that responded -- for helping me with this
Tho I seem to be lacking in UFS knowledge, I am pretty good with mailers --
qmail in particular. If anyone has questions, concerns, or just need
general information on qmail (including upgrading from sendmail to qmail)
please feel free to contact me via e-mail at the address below.
