Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When stripe geometry was specified manually to the mkfs.xfs utility, mkfs.xfs did not properly select "multidisk mode" as it does when stripe geometry is automatically detected. As a result, a less than optimal number of allocation groups were created. With this update, multidisk mode is selected properly, and a larger number of allocation groups are created.
