No. of dirs restriction in JFS? - AIX

Hi, I seem to have been hit by a restriction regarding the number of subdirectories within a JFS filesystem. Currently a directory within a filesystem holds 32766 subdirectories and I`m not able to cretate new subdirectories in this directory: mkdir: 0653-358 There are too many links to a file. I have serched Google on this issue and found only information on the maximum number of files. Can anyone confirm that there is actually such a restriction or can the filesystem be tweaked to overcome this problem? This is AIX 4.3.3 whith ML10, filesystem lives on SSA. TIA -- Dances with ...

    Default No. of dirs restriction in JFS?


    Hi,

    I seem to have been hit by a restriction regarding the number of
    subdirectories within a JFS filesystem.

    Currently a directory within a filesystem holds 32766 subdirectories
    and I`m not able to cretate new subdirectories in this directory:

    mkdir: 0653-358
    There are too many links to a file.

    I have serched Google on this issue and found only information on the
    maximum number of files.

    Can anyone confirm that there is actually such a restriction or can
    the filesystem be tweaked to overcome this problem?

    This is AIX 4.3.3 whith ML10, filesystem lives on SSA.

    TIA

    Sounds logical, including . and .. that makes a total of 32768 wich
    happens to be 32*1024. That is the limit for Ext3 and maybe for JFS too,
    but I can't find this confirmed somewhere.

    Thanks for the pointer. I have to change my application to something
    more intelligent, then.
