Good Afternoon,

    I'm experimenting with ost configurations geared more towards small files and operations on those small files (like source code, and compiling), and I was wondering about changing the stripe size so that small files fit more efficiently on an ost.  I believe that would be the --param lov.stripesize=XX option for mkfs.lustre, is that correct?  And is there a lower limit that I should know about?
