NetApp volumes allow for inodes to be dynamically allocated/increased on volumes which are provisioned on an array. This begs the question, what is the maximum inode count supported by a volume and how is the maximum number calculated?
inodes = files
“The maximum number of inodes is limited to one inode per one block in the filesystem. (which is 1 inode per every 4KB). It is generally recommended to NOT go that low.”
1,288,490,189KB / 4KB Blocks = 322,122,547 supported files / inodes per 1.2TB volume.
