Question about the insufficient buffers to rebalance the tree messages

Just starting with DragonFly, wondering about the
"kernel: hammer: System has insufficient buffers to
rebalance the tree. nbuf < 3969" message every night.
I found some old posts about this, and realize both
that it is relatively harmless and that it has to do
with too small RAM.
But the small RAM part interests me, since my DragonFly
server has 2 GB RAM.

Should I use a smaller partition?
If so, what partition size would be appropriate?
