I found these in my /var/log/messages:

kernel: EXT4-fs warning (device md2): ext4_dx_add_entry: Directory index full!
kernel: EXT4-fs warning (device md2): ext4_dx_add_entry: Directory index full!
kernel: EXT4-fs warning (device md2): ext4_dx_add_entry: Directory index full!

I rebooted the system with a rescue system/image and without mounting the drives, I ran fsck like this: fsck -f /dev/md1 and then fsck -f /dev/md2

This is the result:

root@rescue ~ # fsck -f /dev/md1
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
e2fsck 1.42.5 (29-Jul-2012)

/dev/md1: 39/131072 files (28.2% non-contiguous), 47998/524224 blocks
root@rescue ~ # fsck -f /dev/md2
fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
e2fsck 1.42.5 (29-Jul-2012)

/dev/md2: 33915958/121020416 files (0.5% non-contiguous), 119497991/484052208 blocks
root@rescue ~ #

Does this fsck result look OK ? It was first time I used it. Is there anything to worry about because of those index full errors ?

Edit: This is the output of command df -i

Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on

What OS is this? Are you running fsck on the live mounts? Can you paste the output of df -i ? –  deppfx Aug 1 at 7:37
    
@deppfx I edited my question and included the df -i output, I assume that 29% is what interests you? I knew I had many files in one folder and I kept an eye on this value, it was always around 29%. I didn't ran the fsck directly on the machine, I booted in a separate "rescue" OS. –  adrianTNT Aug 4 at 1:42
