[PLUG] File System Directory Limits

Interesting problem here.

We're trying to replicate what the SEC does (don't ask).
Unfortunately, this somehow involved creating upwards of 100,000
subdirectories in a root directory.

UFS limits us at 32k, NetApp at 64k. If we were designing this, yes,
we'd want to come up with a better scheme or hash things out, but it
really is essential we replicate their set up for the closest

Does anyone know of a file system that can handle upwards of 100,000
sub-directories in root?
