Does ACFS Use inode architecture?

(Doc ID 2026700.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 11.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


1) Monitoring a 20TB ACFS filesystem (using "df -i" command) alerted that very few files are using many inodes.

2) Per 'df -i' command, e.g.  Inodes is = 41943040000, IUsed is = 419430400, and IFree is = 41523609600:

4) Per 'ls -lR | wc -l' lists just 246 files.

5) It was unclear why 246 files + small number of directories is using 419,430,400  Inodes.

6) Can anything be done to increase # of inodes in ACFS filesystems?
