Hi all,

Do you know how to change the capacity of inode space?
I am looking that it has already reached 72% besides my supporting 
Lustre. I want to know where this setting parameters is. And what is 
default parameter? Of cource, I know that the number of inodes 
depends on file size in Lustre file system.

Could you advice me how to increase inodes capacity? If possible, I 
want to change this setting without stopping service.

$ df -ih /work
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on at o2ib: at o2ib:/lfs
                         118M     85M     34M   72% /work

$ df -h /work
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on at o2ib: at o2ib:/lfs
                       788T   74T  675T  10% /work

My Lustre is,


It has been built on RedHat EL 5.1 kernel 2.6.18-53.1.6.el5-PAPI.
