New volume/low directory entries

by mc.holmes In reply to New volume/low directory ...

Are you looking at the volume statistics in servman? If so, you will see two entries.

One is "Directory Entries" which reflects the usable directory entry slots allocated for directory entries. The Netware OS will dynamically allocate slots as needed until the maximum of 16M (for 4.11) is reached. This number will increase as files/directories are added to the volume but will not decrement as files are deleted unless a purge and volume dismount/mount is performed.

The other servman field, "Used Directory Entries" reflects the total number of 128byte directory entry slots actually being used by files/directories.

Refer to TIDs 2910030 and 1202046 in the Novell Knowledgebase.

Hope this answers your question.

Follow this instructions and you will not have volume problems

1.- Do NOt store files in the root
2.- If you have a lot-lot of files relative small, consider this:
a.- Calculate the file size average. Set the volumen blocksize to grater value (4,8,16,32,64Kb) (you will have to re-create the volume)
b.- Make as many (short-name) subdirectories as you can (not too deep), in order to group files by date, name, owner or wathever you can.
3.- Use \public\volinfo.exe to keep track of availablespace and entries.
