An inode (index node) is a data structure found in Linux file systems, consisting of information about file system objects. Examples of file system objects can be files, device nodes, sockets and pipes.

In order for a file system to function, it requires information about the files it contains other than the content itself. Each file on a Linux system is identified by a number, referred to typically as an inode number.

Inodes store data about file and folders, mainly about ownership, permissions (read, write, execute) and file type.

On the Virtuozzo platform, the inode limit is set to 2,000,000 by default which is more than enough for the majority of users.

If you do reach this limit and require additional inodes, please contact customer support by phone, chat or email.
