Hi Chas, 

we are very interested in performance issues for large /vicepX partitions
on Solaris, and your advice and numbers on logging options sounded quite
interesting. However, we ran in some posting which recommends to RUN AWAY
from ufs logging for /vicepX on Solaris, as it may do a lot of harm
(see: http://www.mail-archive.com/info-afs@transarc.com/msg06045.html).

After reading that mail I feel I would be at least very cautious in
enabling logging at this time. As we see that ufs logging may be quite
advantageous, we will probably first set up a testbed server to see how it
all works. 

Can you comment on this?
