Re: hammer-inodes: malloc limit exceeded

:I have replaced my backup system with a new machine running DragonFly and
:Hammer. It is a SMP Opteron with 2GB memory. The backup partition is a
:single disk on a 3Ware RAID controler.
:The previous machine (FreeBSD 7/UFS2) ran rsnapshot every 4 hours and this
:one continues with the same configuration. I have copied the content of the
:old rsnapshot directory to the new backup disk before puting it in production.
:For details on rsnapshot, see http://www.rsnapshot.org/
:/backup is a 400GB Hammer disk:
:Filesystem  Size   Used  Avail Capacity iused   ifree %iused
:Backup      371G   239G   132G    64% 2652953       0  100%
:I have just encountered this panic:
:panic: hammer-inodes: malloc limit exceeded
:mp_lock = 00000000; cpuid = 0
:The backtrace was quickly copied by hand. I may be able to post the full trace
:tomorrow if needed.

    Francois, is this on a 2.0 release system or a HEAD or latest
    release (from CVS) system?

    I was sure I fixed this issue for machines with large amounts of ram.
    Please do this:

	sysctl vfs.maxvnodes

    And tell me what it says.  If the value is greater then 70000, set it
    to 70000.
