Often, on this list, there are issues where there is not enough memory, etc, to repair a large filesystem.

If one is going to create a 10-16TiB filesystem (for example), should one use the mkfs.xfs defaults, or should there be special tuning for filesystems of this size, so they will be less susceptible to failure for one reason or another?

Justin.
