Luckily we have an active month and a previous month. Since this is the first go-round with the Celerra I had additional space to create new volumes after adjusting the ufs.inodelimit to 1.5 billion. I did do it with Celerra manger but I took the failover reboots just to be safe. I lowered my inode size to 4k just to be sure we could make it to the end of the month.
Command I ran:
nas_fs -name d02 -create size=6400000M pool=Pool-d02 -o slice=y -o nbpi=4096
Here is the inode math. Please correct me if I am wrong:
Get from TB to KB:
volume size 6.2TB * 1024 * 1024 *1024 = 6657199308KB
If I have a 8k inode I would have 6657199308.8/8 = 832149913 total inodes
If I have a 4k inode I would have 6657199308.8/4 = 1664299827 total inodes
Once the application is done we will take another look but I have a feeling we will be moving back to the 8k inode size. Thanks for all your help!
with 8k nbpi you should be getting 128M (128*1024*1024) inodes per TB
and for 4k nbpi twice of that
