slow disk performance
I have just installed FreeBSD so i am quite new with only a bit of experience from linux world. My problem is that i have noticed that my hard drive works much slower in FreeBSD than in linux. I know that in linux there is a tool called hdparm to tune the performance of your hard drive, but i was wandering whether there is a similar tool in FreeBSD. Any step by step explanation will be appreciated a lot since am not that confident with FreeBSD at the moment.
Also i noticed that this feature was set automatically in linux, i didn't have to do anything, but it seems that i have to do it manually in FreeBSD. So my other question is: are there are things that need to be configured manually in FreeBSD in order to have a box ready for work.
