Booting FreeBSD on an EC2 c5.xlarge instance, the loader "twiddles" 810 times over the course of 510 ms, a rate of 1.59 kHz. Even accepting that many systems are slower than this particular VM and will take longer to boot (especially if using spinning-rust disks), this seems like an unhelpfully large amount of twiddling when compared to the ~60 Hz frame rate of many displays; printing the twiddles also consumes roughly 10% of the boot time on the aforementioned VM. Setting the default globaldiv to 16 dramatically reduces the time spent printing twiddles to the console while still twiddling at roughly 100 Hz; this should be ample even for systems which take longer to boot and consequently twiddle slower. Note that this can adjusted via the twiddle_divisor variable in loader.conf, but that file is not processed until nearly halfway through the loader's runtime.
