From DaemonNews.org: "We can see that a default FreeBSD installation, while optimized for safety and integrity, is not optimized for
maximum performance as a dedicated network server. Particularly in cases of serving many simultaneous connections,
reliably supporting large numbers of processes, and filesystem performance, one needs to take steps to improve the
performance of the system over the default configuration. The gains that can be realized from this are great, often at least
doubling the performance of the system."
