Is the page http://www.freebsd.org/projects/bigdisk/ up to date with regards
to bigdisk support in FreeBSD?
That page mentions issues with filesystems over 1TB, but I have several
machines with 5.X and 6.X that can see and work fine with 1TB+ filesystems.
Currently going to setup soon a machine with 2TB+ of storage and wanting to
find out what limitations exist.
Any problems with fsck with 2TB+
This will be a database machine so the number of inodes will be few and will
likely do newfs -i 256MB (with the proper syntax to represent 256MB).
Any benefits to even go to 512MB?
The database in question will be postgresql and it creates files up to 2GB
in size. So with 2TB will have at most a handfull of thousands of files.
