Enable FreeBSD 11 pvclock module in 2.4 builds
FreeBSD brings the pvclock module. According to https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-arch/2015-January/016587.html using a paravirtualized clocksource can save unneccessary VM exists and improve performance in some workloads. In the forums (https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=109071.0) it was suggested that the module will ship with pfsense 2.4. A current beta install shows no signs of it.
- cd /boot/kernel
- ls -al pvclock*
ls: No match.
- kldload pvclock
kldload: can't load pvclock: No such file or directory
Even it won't be enabled by default the module should be available with pfsense 2.4 supporting KVM installs.
