 Ive got XFS on a 'production' file server. The machine could have upto
500 people logged in, but typically less than 200. Most are Mac users,
connected via NetAtalk for 'personal files', although there are shared
areas for admin units. Probably about 30-40 windows users. (Samba)
 Its the file server for an Academic faculty at a University. We have a
AlphaServer 800 running Digital Unix for email and web (running ADVFS,
Digital/Compaq/HP?'s journaling FS). Also a old mac G3 'server' running
ASIP 6.3

bash-2.04$ df -h -T
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2      xfs    301M  164M  137M  55% /
/dev/sda1     ext2     61M   14M   44M  23% /boot
/dev/rd/c0d0p1 xfs    205G   73G  132G  36% /home
/dev/sda5      xfs    2.2G  1.3G 1014M  56% /usr
/dev/sda7      xfs    2.9G  254M  2.6G   9% /usr/local
/dev/sda6      xfs    1.9G  163M  1.7G   9% /var

 11:21am  up 93 days, 23:09, 139 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.07, 0.06
(The user count is wrong - Im trying to use Samba's UTMP support, and it
often doesn't clean up after itself :-)
bash-2.04$ ps -ef | grep afpd | wc
    122    1340    9859
bash-2.04$ ps -ef | grep smbd | wc
     24     216    1829
 Might give a better idea of current 'users' - just under 150.

uname -a
Linux aristotle.arts.usyd.edu.au 2.4.7-pre6-xfs #24 SMP Thu Jul 19
16:47:10 EST 2001 i686 unknown

 Hardware RAID, via Mylex dual channel controller with 4 drives, Intel
Tupelo MB, Intel 'SC5000' server chassis with redundant power and
hot-swap scsi bays. The system boots of a non RAID single 9gb UW-scsi

 Have removed both a power supply and a raid disk on the running system
to check that the redundancy actually worked (and that scripts watching
for faults actually worked...) 

 Only system 'crash' was caused by some one accidently unplugging it,
just before we put it into production. In day to day use it has run

 The network between the users is Cisco ethernet switches, at 100Mb,
with 1000Mb optical trunks and 7 'virtual' LANs.
