In testing this against 13.0-BETA1, stderr redirection does not appear to work:

When testing with fully-booted Windows Server 2019 and FreeBSD 13 guests, 10 second and 30 second waits work. (Destroy wait isn't reached)
Two people have confirmed that Windows often needs two ACPI nudges. It may be wise to take this approach.
Ignore the Dom0 reported in xl list! LOL!
royger@, Do you have any thoughts on how to elegantly check if a VM is running during start, to skip it? Will xl create generally do the right thing if a VM is already running?
I'm guessing load_rc_config $name isn't needed?
Here's a thought on VM tear-down:

royger@: I am finding that Windows sometimes needs two shutdown attempts. Should this be left to the user to verify that the shutdown was successful, or should we consider some logic to wait, destroy, etc?
(Not sure how to submit unsubmitted comments...)
Regarding "status": This relies entirely on xl(1) for status, and it just provides the facts. There is no daemon involved short of xencommons and the Xen kernel itself. I had to use xencomains_cmd because without it, the rc framework would look to see if xl was running (xl top in my case for debugging), and it would say "Hey, is this already running?" when you started domains. NetBSD opts for a "list" rather than status, and Linux does things I need to decrypt.
Removing DOCS mention, adding xencommons REQUIREment
Feedback from royger@: REQUIRE: XENCOMMONS (All caps?)
Let's see what royger@ says on those points. Thank you!
Correcting PREFIX and adding USE_RC_SUBR
Looking at other examples in files, is this correct?
Moved to external utility in 2019
Fixed by bz@ in 2019 and re-fixed in 2021

Thank you Kyle and Ed!

Great work! Will 'config.dump' or another flag do a dry-run dump of the bhyve command to be executed? This would be very helpful. Apologies if I am overlooking it.

Thank you bz@!

I did a quick MAXCPU increase test on 12.0R based on comments by cpersiva@ but the results were neither positive nor directly related to these patches.
To use these patches, first increase VM_MAXCPU from 16 in:
I have applied these related VM_MAXCPU patches to 12.0R and rebuilt the related components.

I have split out the build option survey components and WITHOUT_DYNAMICROOT.
Ed, this builds and installs for me wth both pristine sources that include only these, and my sources with my other build option changes updated to this for dhcpclient/ping.
Sep 7 2018
That looks good to me. Please advise if you want me to test it.
I have updated the diff to remove the build option survey components and have submitted a separate diff to rgrimes for his review and review by his mentors. This is based on 12.0-ALPHA4.

From another 12.0-ALPHA4 build:
Adding the 'svnlite diff -x -U99999' full diff. Not yet broken it up.
I believe at least some of these should be addressed by fixing whatever failed rather than by excluding parts from the build; do you have a list of the errors you encountered with the various combinations? i.e., I would be interested in seeing how ping and dhclient fail under DYNAMICROOT.
For any future uploads please include full context (e.g. from git diff -U9999 or equivalent).

Yes, it appears syslogd can be be built with a mix of WITHOUT_INET and WITHOUT_INET_SUPPORT, plus the WITHOUT_INET6 and WITHOUT_INET6_SUPPORT

Were the tips removed by this added to adduser(8) or the Handbook?
In my testing, this appears to be based on FreeBSD 10.1, which is well supported by AHCI emulation. Supporting back to 5.0 or earlier would make this much more useful.
Consider changing it to mention of using a "memstick" .img installer in Shell mode. I find them quite useful for rescue work and the install media can even be used to boot the new installation in bhyve(8).

Have you found any time?

Several people would like to see this through. Please add a copyright and license to the work.

mat, is this something you can commit?
Ed's comments are all accurate. This document conflates many things and suggest we take a moment to address them at BSDCan or in advance. I for one think the nuts and bolts of SVN be separated out, ideally in a way that produces a document that can double as an in-base man page for snvlite(1).

Yes, this is a forklift upgrade of a ransom note of a document. Please specify the sequence of changes you would like to see.

That's correct. And I prefer that the problem is fixed in beadm from ports.

Some of the issues that this addresses, as pointed out:
Aug 1 2016
The original sysbench author promised an updated release but may have abandoned the project. Percona has forked it for their purposes. Other suggestions in this situation?
Jul 21 2016
Support for FreeBSD 6 and older, even if for historical/academic purposes, is a topic that keeps coming up. Legacy systems come in all shapes and sizes and I can think of at least one point-of-sale vendor that spans generations of FreeBSD and other Unix systems.

I can't help but notice that there is a /usr/share/firmware directory.

May I suggest removing "-edk2" from the port name? Few users know what this means and it is easily forgotten.
