I've got a server with over 1.5 Million files in a single directory, which really is not a good idea.
My problem is that the management refuses to accept the fact that it's a bad idea to have that many files in one directory.
To make the problem worse, the folder in question is exported via Samba and NFS!
Has anyone come across any references/documents that I could use to slap some sense into them?
So far all concerns from Sys admins and Developers have been ignored.
Oh and to boot, the next release of the application looks set to produce 3 times as many files.
