I have a question, I've checked out the man page and it suggested when
creating blank files, use dd if=/dev/zero of=/outfile bs=32k..... Does the
size of block affect performance? (e.g. bs=16k vs bs=64k) If I use bs=32k,
does innd writes articles in chunks of 32k (so if I have articles less than
32k, I'll have internal fragmentation?
