I have a configuration in which I want to use a huge amount (1000-10000) of self mounts (
mount --bind). My filesystem is ext4 in RAID 1 with two 400GB HDDs.
Basically, what I am trying to do is making files available, that are synchronized from a local servers with low bandwith to the internet, via ftp and eventually a webinterface on top. These files come from many different sources and I found it viable to just
chroot my round about 1000 users to individual directories and putting self-mounted reference to the different synchronized paths in them, according to the individuals rights. Symlinks do not work because of the
chroot jail. I am using
Is there a performance or any different problem with that?
