increasing max. amount of DAOS files

At the moment, there is a maximum of 40000 .nlo files per folder and maximum 1000 folders (means about 40 Mio files).
We have about 4700 users and on the central archive server we nearly have 400 folders.
So I would suggest increasing the maximum amount of .nlo files.

    Not sure if increasing a server beyond a certain level will scale file-system wise!
    40.000 entries per folder is already a high limit. We usually reduce it to 20.000 per folder. This is true for Windows and Linux.

    Domino performance will be still good. But you also have to think about incremental backup performance and disaster recovery!

    We usually split archive servers using dynamically assigned archive policies as a best practice.

    If you take 40000 * 9999 * 128 KB as a smallest maximum physical size, that would be quite a huge amount of data. Even if you select 64 KB as a threshold, this will be a two digit TB size.

    What could make sense is to allow multiple DAOS stores for more flexibility.

    I would be interested to hear how much storage your DAOS directory has today.

    If you want to discuss, see my email-adress below.
