Does anyone know whether there is a limit on the number of files
per directory for ext2 filesystems. The machine is running 2.4.19
kernel, Debian potato. I imagine that even that there is a limit
it might slow down fsck considerably. I'm asking because someone
has a directory with 12000+ (small-ish) files on our webserver...:)
