Description hjl 2002-09-18 14:47:35 EDT
By default, mke2fs allocates one inode for every 8KB data.
On a tera byte filesystem, it is a lot of inodes. I am
uploading a patch to change it to 16KB per inode for fs
bigger than 1TB.

Can you please submit this also for inclusion into the upstream release?

Seems this is not part of release 1.32. Is this resolved with an option instead
changing the automatic defaults?

Closing here, should go into upstream releases.
