Size of cnfs cycbuffs is smaller than I specified. How to change that?

Hi,

So, I am running my news on a Solaris 2.6 box with a bunch of disks in a multipack. I had no luck getting the mknoded devices to work, but found that metadevices (Disk Suite) work fine (/dev/md/d2, etc.). Anyway, I created a large stripe of 4 32GB (127GBtotal) drives, one disk that is 68GB and 2*18GB. 

Here is my cycbuff.conf:
##
##
cycbuff:ONE:/dev/md/dsk/d2:31000000
cycbuff:TWO:/dev/md/dsk/d3:68600000
cycbuff:THREE:/dev/md/dsk/d4:127600000
 
metacycbuff:MAIN:ONE,TWO,THREE

storage.conf:
method cnfs {
        newsgroups: *
        class: 0
        size: 0,214000000
        options: MAIN
}

I used format to partition each of the disks into the entire disk being on slice 7.

To prepare the disks I just then used metainit d2 2 1 c1t4d0s7 1 c1t5d0s7.

I have not run newfs or anything on the metadevices.

I then crank up innd and cnfsstat does not appear to show me what I had hoped....


Here is the output from cnfsstat:
Class MAIN  for groups matching "*", article size min/max: 0/214000000
 Buffer ONE, size:  1.56 GBytes, position:   124 MBytes  0.08 cycles

 Buffer TWO, size:  1.42 GBytes, position:   118 MBytes  0.08 cycles
  Newest: 2002-07-30  7:44:02,    0 days,  0:00:03 ago
 Buffer THREE, size:  1.69 GBytes, position:   121 MBytes  0.07 cycles
  Newest: 2002-07-30  7:44:02,    0 days,  0:00:03 ago

What have I done wrong? How can I get all of my disk space allocated used?



Thanks!


Chris
