Did this change lately? I found the rule of thumb: 2 GB RAM for 1 TB
of disk storage + some RAM per x inodes.
I'm interested in this too, because we'll get additional 15 TB disk
space soon. Until now I created filesystems of max 7-8 TB on a server
with 16 GB RAM. The 15 TB (mostly 2-5 GB large files) will be used on
a server with only 6 GB RAM (debian etch, xfsprogs 2.8.11-1). We plan
to expand the RAM to 12 GB. What size would be safe for a xfs
filesystem on a server with 12 GB RAM (given mostly large files)?
