Inode/Blocksize questions



Hi!

I'm going to build a maildir-based mailserver with a ~56 gb
mail-partition. What blocksize/bytes-per-inode/number of inodes should i
use (i don't want to ran out of inodes and don't want to sacrifice too
much space for filefragments)?

Is there a drawback when lowering the blocksize/increasing the number of
inodes (except the maximum filesystem size)?

The inodes used by a file is always filesize divided by the blocksize
rounded up to the next absolute value, isn't it?

best regards,
Michael Renner
