 +====== Optimizations ======
 +
 +This page gives some hints and optimizations you can make to tune your MINIX 3 system
 +to match your requirements.
 +
 +===== Increase the File System buffer cache =====
 +
 +<!> This particular hint is outdated. <!>
 +
 +If you have a large memory, you may also wish to increase the size of the file system buffer cache.
 +To do this, change the value of the constant //NR_BUFS// in //​servers/​mfs/​Makefile//​. This value tells how big the cache is in disk blocks (normally 4 KB), so a value of, say, 4096, creates a 16-MB cache.
 +Then rebuild and reboot the system.
