(First of all, I'm not sure if this question should be posted in the Hardware .
category, please let me know if I have to move it to another category).
I've installed a 3 tb disk on my computer (secondary disk). I've created a single partition using parted (specifying gpt and correct alignment):
parted -a optimal /dev/sdb1 mkpart primary 0% 100%
Now I want to use xfs on that partition, I've been reading on the internet and found some references about performance problems if the sector size is not specified correctly, but I'm not sure I understand correctly the problem.
For the above reason, it's not clear to me if I should specify a 4096 sector size or just create the filesystem normally; should I do this?:
mkfs -t xfs -s size=4096 /dev/sdb1
Anybody can shed some light on the subject? Thanks in advance!
