   Could these mount options can be also applied on production server ?
   (i.e. mail, web and sql db server ?)

   Is there possibility to limit memory used for disk/file cacheing ?

   How mkfs.xfs calculates values for agcount and agsize ?
   (I have spent some time trying to find apropriate "-l SIZE"
   for each created fs)

   On 15GB filesystem, did it makes big difference that it was created
   with "-l" value twice as you suggest ?

   Am I wrong thinking that noatime, nodiratime mount options also are
   tweaking XFS performance (as for ext2fs) ? (I dont need these info at
