A Linux i-Node has 12 disk addresses for data blocks, as
well as the addresses of single, double and triple indirect
blocks. If each of these holds 256 disk addresses what is
the size of the largest file that can be handled, assuming
that a disk block is 1KB?
Solution
A Linux i-Node has 12 disk addresses for data blocks,
as well as the addresses of single, double and triple
indirect blocks.
If each of these holds 256 disk addresses what is the
size of the largest file that can be handled, assuming
that a disk block is 1KB?
In Linux, i node data structure represents filesystem object
like a directory or a file
Each disk block = 1024 Bytes = 1 KB
256 * 12 = 3072 Bytes = 3 KB
3072 / 1024 = 3 blocks each
i node means a single pointer to a block of data of size 1
KB in our case
plus 1 pointer for the indirect block
