Re: [linux-lvm] Find Correct LE Size of ext4 Partition (16TB)



Hi,

by multiplying block count by block size you get de filesystem size in
bytes. Converting into TiB yields a value just shy of 16 TiB (as
expected). More precisely 15.99999999627470970153.

If the PE size is 4 MiB and my calculations are correct, you would
need 16 TiB * 1024 * 1024 / 4 = 4194304  LEs.
