in reply to Re^3: Store a huge amount of data on disk
in thread Store a huge amount of data on disk
Thanks, I used that solution for a number of issues in the past, but I'm curious if our filesystem will deal with this number of files an still stay maintainable.
I learned that any overall-operation (like movie, backup) may become arbitrary long and filesystems suffer from heavy file numbers over time.
I thought about merging multiple items into one file (maybe replacing the last directory of your suggestion), but the very different item sizes and text blocks arriving unsorted but still must be finally delivered in their correct order are hard to handle.
