What's the max size of custom metadata ?

asked 2019-01-31 07:40:44 -0500

I found some information about metadata, they’re stored in Extended Attributes (https://docs.openstack.org/swift/latest/overview_architecture.html (https://docs.openstack.org/swift/late...)) so the limit of the metadata an object can store is defined by the File System we used (XFS, BTRFS, ext3).

For example XFS has a limit of 4 Ko for keys+values.

What’s the size of the metadata used by Swift for each object (object’s size, path, etc) ? This will allow me to know the real size of personal metadata I could use.

Thanks in advance !
