Hi there,

I have a CD-ROM m0n0wall installation which have great performance problems.
'All mbuf clusters exhausted, please see tuning(7)'

netstat -m on the devices tell me that I have to tune
$ netstat -m
1184/2320/5696 mbufs in use (current/peak/max):
        1177 mbufs allocated to data
        7 mbufs allocated to packet headers
1158/1424/1424 mbuf clusters in use (current/peak/max)
3428 Kbytes allocated to network (80% of mb_map in use)
381 requests for memory denied
1 requests for memory delayed
0 calls to protocol drain routines

I would like to tune in boot/loader.conf:
kern.ipc.nmbclusters="16384"

But I have no idea on how to change the m0n0wall ISO image!

Any thoughts are most welcome, as I have a wall that only work 50% of the
time :)
