Strategy2workspace4CUDA

Status: 4TB hard disk with four(4) 1TB gpt partitions
allocated for CUDA development in scientific
linux 6.5 with NVidia 750 Ti as GPU card
and NVidia FX 1800 serving 2 lcd displays
nb: >2TB disk, therefor 64-bit gpt

Exploring 64-bit file formats
gfs2 - might work in standalone workstation?
ext4 - 64-bit with journaling,nano time stamps?
ntfs - works with ntfs-3g but nothing new?
xxxx - other high performace format?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Created file system for each 1TB partition of 4TB

#su
#mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdd1
#mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdd2
#mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdd3
#mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdd4

For each four (4) one(1) TB partition operation the following was displayed:
mke2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Filesystem label= <-- None because not given in command
OS type: Linux
Block size = 4096 (log=2)

12 207 014 blocks (5.00%) reserved for super user
First data block = 0
Max file system blocks = 4 294 967 296
7451 block groups

Superblock back-ups stored on blocks: 32768 …
Writing inode tables: done
Creating journal (32768 blocks): done
Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting info: done
This file system will eventually checked after 24 months or 180 days
use tune2fs -c or -i to override

Notes
labels not given in above process!
parted was NOT used because its corresponding subcommand recommended NOT to use!

Labeled partitions
#tune2fs -L Saturn /dev/sdd1
#tune2fs -L Titan /dev/sdd2
#tune2fs -L Enceladus /dev/sdd3
#tune2fs -L Phoebe /dev/sdd4

Notes:
GUI System->Places->Computer displayed all four(4) 1TB partitions with right names!
