Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Re: file size

As per the latest quickspec document,

"The maximum size of an Advanced File System file is 16 TB - 8K for a fully
populated file and 16 TB for a sparse file."

Re: file size

Adding Advanced File System Utilities provides generous configuration capabilities. A file domain may contain up to 256 volumes.
The maximum volume size is 1 TB - 512 K. The maximum number of files in a fileset is (231) - 6. (This number is limited by the length
of the tag used to uniquely identify a file in a fileset.) The maximum size of an Advanced File System file is 16 TB - 8K for a fully
populated file and 16 TB for a sparse file. The maximum fileset size is 256TB -128M, (231) - 1 filesets are allowed in each domain,
and an unlimited number of filesets can be mounted simultaneously on a stand alone machine (4096 is the maximum number of
filesets that can be mounted in a cluster). The maximum number of files allowed in a directory is (231) - 6 and up to 65,533
subdirectories are allowed per directory. Multi-TB file systems can be established by using multiple volumes to create an AdvFS
domain.
