Okay, I've had some problems with the VM on my machine, what is the most
usefull way to compile reports for you? I have modified the kernel for a few
different ports fixing bugs, and device drivers, etc., but the VM is all
greek to me, I can just see that caching is hyper aggressive and doesn't look
like it's going back to the pool..., which results in sluggish performance.
Now I know from the work that I've done that anecdotal information is almost
never even remotely usefull. Therefore is there any body of information that
I can read up on to create a usefull set of data points for you or other VM
hackers to look at? (Or maybe some report in the past that you thought was
especially usefull?)

Thank You,
Shane Nay.
(I have in the past had many problems with the VM on embedded machines as
well, but I'm not actively working on any right this second..., though my
Psion is sitting next to me begging for me to run some VM tests on it :)
