Hi ,
I have just started using DragonFly BSD.
I am just curious if I could find some documentation on how Dfly differs
with FreeBSD on SMP initiatives. When going through some documents I read
words like big kernel lock and fine-grained locks. Apart from the buzz
words I was not able get any documentation on those.

And how different kernels behave with different sets of workload?

Can anyone point me to some documents on this.
Kindly help me.
