I format a new disk 10 GB for 26 million inodes with parted standard procedure and I got 26 million inodes but the free disk space available is 4 GB after formatting (so I loss disk space 6 GB). This disk is intended for storing data around 26 million files and is mounted to /mnt.
I expect you have a better way to format with smaller loss disk space. When you apply this project, please quote with the free disk space in GB after formatting it for 26 million inodes.
Procedure to accomplish the project:
(1). I give you a temporary password for ssh root access to my Huawei ECS that I have already attached a new disk 10 GB but have not formatted yet.
(2). Make a video recording starting you login to Huawei ECS until you complete to format a disk (fair quality video is ok). At the end of video, you have to show 2 below command results:
"df -i" --- to check the inodes number, at least 26 million.
"df -h" --- to check the available free disk space, at least as same as you promised when you applied this project.
(3). Send the video recording to me to finish and get payment.
My estimating price is one hour charge of your rate. But I accept more hours charge of your rate if this project is really difficult.
