Part of the problem here is that "mkfs" is really just a wrapper for the actual "mkfs.foo" for each filesystem "foo"... the mkfs man page was probably written before there were any filesystems that h

Hmm... yes, you're right. If it's a problem, send a patch. You're the first person to notice this in well over a year now, so I guess it just hasn't bothered most people. You're after the -d size=XX

Yup. From an XFS point of view, I guess the only sane interpretation for this extra argument would be to treat it as the size of the data device. Or just not worry about it - it may actually be more

Probably I should. Perhaps later. If I read the manpage correctly, that filesystem would not fit into a device with size xxxb, as the log is still added. Ahh, that's serious. I'll have to find a work

The log is either internal (ie. part of the data volume), in which case its size must be accounted for in sizing the data volume; or its external in which case you would have to give other mkfs opti

I looked into this a bit more ... I got that minimum size from the man page, so assumed it was right. Its not. On IRIX, I'm able to create a 4MB filesystem (which is strange because IRIX mkfs man pa

Take a look at the xfs mkfs source code first, it has many many calculations based on the size of various things in there to prevent you from making a non-working filesystem, adding new options is n

I sent my previous message and realized another workaround, if you want to experiment with xfs like this, then you can use a loop device on top of a file in an existing filesystem. Performance is pr

Well, not one on a filesystem this small - but the logic which makes the minimum log size calculation is too simple to factor in the size of the filesystem. I do not know which one it might be, the
