NFS mounted system size


Hi

I have an NFS server running an older version of AIX that exports two disk partitions. Let's say /1 and /2

I also have an NFS client running Fedora 9.

I am able to NFS mount /1 and /2 from NFS server under /mnt/1 and /mnt/2 on the client.

If I do a df command on the aix server,

I see that /1 is 2Gb total and 1.7Gb is used
and /2 is 2Gb total and 1.4Gb is used

I see the same if I do a df command on the NFS client (Linux)

Now, the confusing part is here: in the GUI of Fedora, if I go under /mnt and right click on /1 and check folder properties, it tells me that there is ~ 54 000 files (which i assume is the correct number) for a total of 5.3Gb! And for /2, properties indicate 1.2Gb. Where do these extra 3.6 Gb come from on /1...? and even the smaller difference for /2 confuses me (but this might be just the way different systems round off large numbers)?

can somebody explain this to me, please....

Thank you!
