Hi,
I have a FreeBSD server that has about 10,500 subdirectories within a single
directory.
This number will keep rising and I assume UFS2 has a limit to the number of
sub-directories in a single directory - can anyone tell me what it is?



make sure your kernel is compiled with

options         UFS_DIRHASH


or it will be slow


the limit is 32765, just because link count is 2 bytes wide and each subdir adds two to base directory. you have to change to 2 level hierarchy.


with files - i started creating empty files, it turned slow after about 320000.
