I see no issues on my systems, either 4.x or 5.x, with up to 10k files in a directory. Enabling the UFS_DIRHASH kernel option (available in 4.4 and later) will greatly speed up access to large directories, at the cost of a little memory (adjustable via sysctl). -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
