[been to FAQ, Google, archives, no joy]
Does OpenBSD realize any performance gains from putting swap space
partitions on different hard drives? Or am I just as well off using a
single large swap partition on a single drive? swapctl(8) says you
can balance between different swap devices, but not if you have any
benefits from multiple local swap partitions. (FreeBSD does benefit
from multiple local swap partitions, which is why I ask.)
On a related note: I assume OpenBSD is smart enough to prefer local
swap to, say, NFS swap? Or do you need to set this manually?
Pointers to man pages welcome.
