HP-UX 11i - File Size Limitation And Number Of Folders Limitation

Hi All,

Can anyone please clarify me the following questions:

1. Is there any file size limitation in HP-UX 11i, that I can able to create upto certain size of file (say 2 GB) and not more then that????

2. At max. how many files we can able to keep inside a folder????

3. How many folders I can able to created under perticular folder???

4. Is there any impcat in number of files, while fetching a perticular file from a directory, if number of files are in millions???


Please answer to my questions, as I am in middle of my implementation...

If you need any clarification, then please write back.

Thank you.
