I'm using a 72gb swap disk.
I've 10gb RAM

I get this warning:

warning: total configured swap (8960911 pages) exceeds maximum recommended amount (8243200 pages).
warning: increase kern.maxswzone or reduce amount of swap.

What is max. recommended amount based on?
What is the danger of exceeding it?
How should I increase kern.maxswzone?

# sysctl kern.maxswzone
kern.maxswzone: 0
# 

Do I set it to the total swap size?
Where is kern.maxswzone described?

Thanks

Anton
