SUMMARY: file based db in Solaris

Well - it basically comes down to this - UFS is linear, so any search on
a large directory is bad. The real solution is to use a true database.
If you're like us and can't do that for the moment, use a low files per
directory ratio.

Thanks to: Stephen Harris and Rodney Wines
