Is there a recommendation by Apple concerning the size of the Catalog
File (and of the Extents Overflow File), depending on the size of the
For instance, I get following values when formatting with the Disk
Utility under Mac OS X.2:
Vol Ext*Node Size Cat*Node size
100MB 191*4096 191*4096
40GB 1586*4096 4864*8192
250GB 2048*4096 8704*8192
Which threshold would be reasonnable to switch to 8192-byte nodes?
Is it reasonnable to think that, for the time being, 8192 is the
biggest node size to be used?
