I do *almost* the same exact thing, for a similarly large (and growing) archive I do:
/123/456/789/123456789...32 or /123/456/789/entire-hash
agreed on the notion that "The distributive properties of MD5 garantuee a good spread among buckets.". You should never do this with numbers, but if you must, you can reverse the numbers to get a decent distribution ( ie - 12345 -> 54321 ) another difference that i do is the following-- i name the file the md5, and store the original file name in postgres. that gives me a speedup on fileserving. its relatively simple to create rewrite rules under apache & nginx to directly serve these files too.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
