Objet:	Re: vmstat "b" : Huge value


Incompatibility between VxFS and a change to a kernel structure made by
a Sun patch.

Here's a link to a discussion about the actual problem..

Since that discussion, another patch has been released that should
correct it.  I don't have the particulars handy.  Note that the problem
affects the statistics, not the actual machine performance.

counter overflow ?
