My trick for making sure my jails don't eat my CPU (I use jail.conf and /etc/rc.d/jail:

grep jail /etc/rc.conf:

jail_enable="YES"
jail_program="/usr/local/bin/nice_jail"
jail_consolecmd="/usr/bin/nice -n 15 /usr/sbin/idprio -t /usr/bin/login -f root"

$ cat /usr/local/bin/nice_jail
#!/bin/sh

exec /usr/bin/nice -n 15 /usr/sbin/idprio -t /usr/sbin/jail "$@"

If anyone wants to use FreeBSD 10.1 on Google Cloud Compute, I've created a tar which can be converted to a very basic image here:

http://storage.googleapis.com/swills-test-bucket/FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-amd64-20141121033330.tar.gz

Note that you'll need to make this into an image since users don't have the ability to publicly share images.

The script I used to create this is here:

https://github.com/swills/FreeBSD-gcloud

It's very basic right now, there's a lot more to do based on:

https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/images#buildingimage

But it boots up and works well enough that I thought I'd go ahead and put it out there in case anyone wants to use it or help with the script.

Updated tar here:

http://storage.googleapis.com/swills-test-bucket/FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-amd64-20150101032704.tar.gz

aka gs://swills-test-bucket/FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-amd64-20150101032704.tar.gz

You can create an image of this using:

gcutil addimage freebsd-101-release-amd64-20150101032704  gs://swills-test-bucket/FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-amd64-20150101032704.tar.gz

and launch an image using:

gcloud compute instances create --zone us-central1-b --image freebsd-101-release-amd64-20150101032704 --boot-disk-size 20GB gtest1

The boot disk will grow to 20gb and any init scripts you specify via the --metadata arg or via the GUI will be run.
