Axel, I still see exactly the same freezes with my test (watch ActivityMonitor while a 4 Gb file is created with dd). At the exact point the cache fills up all my available memory I get the first UI freeze (of a few seconds). The freeze repeates itself some other times before the dd operation completes.I only see an occasional pause here, but that's only if I try to do other things while dd and ActivityMonitor are running (i.e. trying to go into Deskbar and run apps)...just ActivityMonitor and dd alone show no freezes here on an A64 X2 w/ 1GB on r31836.
What I see could be related to the amount of memory (3 Gb) available to Haiku. I will try to remove some memory to check this theory, although the minimum I will manage to reduce to is 2 Gb. Didn't you mention at some point you had a machine with 3 or 4 Gb od memory?
