I am currently working on a product where I am importing files into a database. The files are being placed in that directory faster than I can import it. If the files go past a couple of thousands say 2000, then the system slows down, thus I need to know if there are a max number of files per directory is before the performance will be affected. I need to know what the max value of files is.
I am currently running on Solaris 8. System hardware: 2gigs of Ram, dual P3 800Mhz Intel system
