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.

- File size: from 8 to 250 GB
- Filesystem: XFS, JFS, PVFS2
- filesystem size: 8 to 250 TB
