Subject: What is the limit size of tmpfs /dev/shm ?
Date: Wed, 06 Feb 2008 14:54:14 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hello Kernel Users,

is there a size limit for tmpfs for the /dev/shm filesystem?
Normally its default size is set to 2 GB. Is it possible to create a 2 
TB (Terrabyte) filesystem with tmpfs?
Or is there a maximum size defined in the linux kernel?

Best regards,
Mika Lawando
