comment High Memory 64bit server, not using all ram
Yes, you are showing 0.1%wa, so it's not like you are wasting time hitting the disk, if you want to get more work out of these systems, have a look at a good book on tuning, and figure out where the bottleneck is, because it's not the disk.

comment Can I mount a BTRFS snapshot of a live filesystem?
[That is a normal use][1], well, mounting multiple snapshots of the same fs, I think you cannot have them rw, but I wouldn't even bet on that. Give it a try [1]: btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/FAQ#What_is_a_snapshot.3F

Yeah, there was a discussion on the Linux kernel mailing list about what sync meant. What app people think it means, what it means to kernel people, and what the hardware actually does can be three very different things. At least the Postgres people have shown they have cared about this from day one.

Hardware is scarier than we like to think. Perhaps battery backed cache is good enough, but anything less, well hardware lies.
