I have some questions and am wondering if you could help me any further:
it is stated that XFS has a file system size limit of 9 EB. But I could
imagine that this could refer to a fs block size of 64k, which is possible
with IRIX, but impossible with Linux. Does this mean that with Linux, XFS
has effectively a limit of 1/16th of that value, which is something about
AFAIK the limit is 2^63 which equals the 9EB. I believe this to be based on
the standard 4K block size.
We first need a Linux kernel that can scale past the 2TB block device boundary.
It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
