Spelunking in /etc/rc.conf, I found the rc_parallel setting,
accompanied with a quite significant WARNING.
Have anyone experienced any trouble setting rc_parallel to "YES"?
Obviously, the answer to this is "YES". If no one had a problem with
this, first, there wouldn't be a warning; and second, it would be
enabled by default. Sure that some people use it without much problem,
but if you enable it, be sure to keep it in your mind that you enabled
it, and disable it if you have problems before opening any bug report
having to do with system services and/or the init process.
You indeed are pedantically correct :-)
If I may rephrase my question, I'd write: Have anyone in this list experienced any trouble setting rc_parallel to 'yes' ;-)
In any case, placebo effects aside as always, all you'll gain from
this will be a couple of seconds.
In my case, I have to start eth0 to eth5 (yes, 6 eth's), and the speedup is quite significant :-)
