So, I recently discovered that the SSDs in my homeserver could self-encrypt, and after using sedutil I had full disk encryption that was independent of the OS. Because of that, the last and biggest thing holding me back from switching to was solved (Full Disk Encryption). So now i'm migrating all my stuff from my jury-rigged linux server to it.

So far, it's been as simple as dding image files into a zfs volume, and using the awesome tools that comes with SmartOS.

Hopefully this solves my OOM problems. I got:

  • vm.panic_on_oom enabled, so hopefully when I run out of memory, it just kills the VM instead of hanging.
  • installed so it never comes to that.
  • enabled to get just a little more out of it.

I want to avoid uping the VM's ram as long as I can lol
