Ok, I give you that.  Not supported by Our vendor is more
accurate.Unfortunately you could not give me an HP box... Too many bad
experiences.

I hear you there.  We are standardized on it for five years now.  I can't
speak highly enough of it. I like it because its generally the fastest
filesystem overall with all the different kinds of storage we have (size,
heavy file i/o, and databases).  It scales really big and can grow online...
some of our luns are in the 30TB range.  Agreed on the online fragmentation
too... Happy to say this is only the second time ever that I ran
xfs_repair... and the first time was on my old failing laptop drive, so that
really doesn't count for much.

-Cheers, Peter.
