I am thinking it is 1 million, but not sure of this. How to validate this ?

    Accepted Solution

    As I understand it, Sun decided to have a maximum inode density
    of 1 per 1MB on MT (multi terabyte) UFS filesystems, which means the maximum number of inodes for a 1TB filesystem is 1 million.
