What UFS-like filesystem has unlimited inodes, but is a drop-in replacement for ext3, and is fairly easy to configure?
Is UFS2 no longer considered the "best" general-use filesystem? Reason I ask: I'm going to create many small (~1K) files on a 100G disk and thus need at least 100M inodes. "newfs -i" maxes out at ~52M inodes (862 groups * 60864 inodes =~ 52M inodes): # newfs -N -i 1 /dev/da1;: same results as -i 2048 /dev/da1: 102400.0MB (209715200 sectors) block size 16384, fragment size 2048 using 862 cylinder groups of 118.88MB, 7608 blks, 60864 inodes. I realize I can use "f 512 -b 4096" to get 200M+ inodes, but I'm willing to experiment w/ a new filesystem, provided it behaves mostly like UFS.
