Add more mem might not be a viable solution: Ceph does not say how much data is stores in an inode but the docs say the xattr of ext4 is not big enough. Assuming xfs will use 512 bytes is probably very optimistic. So for e.g. 300 million inodes you are talking about, at least, 150GB. > >Also, i tested it on XFS use mdtest, here is the result: > > >FS: 824.5 GiB Used FS: 4.8% Inodes: 52.4 Mi Used Inodes: 0.6% 52 million files without extended attributes is probably not a real life scenario for a filled up ceph node with multiple OSDs.
