in reply to Biggest file?

A few years back I wrote a script to scan a broken filesystem for video files by combing through the raw disk device. The RAID was 13 TB, and the individual files saved went from a couple GB to 50 or 60 GB.

Else I wrote a few disk benchmark scripts that work fine indeed... Perl moves data around more than fast enough to saturate the speediest storage.

  • OS Linux
  • File size: from 8 to 250 GB
  • Filesystem: XFS, JFS, PVFS2
  • filesystem size: 8 to 250 TB
  • content: video, various binary
  • binary data
