You won't run out of space; xfs dynamically allocates inodes up to a set max percentage, default 25% of space in inodes. However, you can always use xfs_growfs to increase that if necessary. 25% of 300G / 256byte inodes still leaves you with plenty of room for -lots- of files & dirs (314,572,800 if I calculated right).
OK, that was my biggest worry.
how are you assembling the 300G? stripe values etc might be worth examining.
The 300G array is an external hardware FC-to-Ultra160 array using a CMD controller (old and no longer repairable, but still works fine). I've thought about trying to deal with that, but the array is already so fast that I don't think I could really improve things very much.
