Hi,

As per the http://docs.openstack.org/developer/swift/deployment_guide.html (deployment guide) , there should be a minimum of 100 partitions per drive. (As recommended by swiftstack too) My question is how this number was chosen? What are the impacts of that number on the swift's performance?

Thank you,

Yes I saw that, but I was asking how did they chose that number? Why 100?
