Re: HPUX : max number of inodes

Hi Ahmed,

The kernel tunables ninode(HFS) or vx_ninode (VXFS) determine this. Check/set them with kctune:

# kctune vx_ninode ninode
Tunable Value Expression Changes
ninode 8192 Default
vx_ninode 64000 64000 Immed

If you can exceed it, then it's not a limit.

Hi:

I like Pete's answer! That said, for 'VxFS' filesystems inodes are essentially unlimited.

Regards!
