        We experienced a file create (just creating empty files through a
     script) rate of 10/sec on an HP 420:

     uname -a output:

     HP-UX svba0005 B.10.20 A 9000/800 494586331 two-user license

        The file system is VxFS.

        ANY help would be appreciated!

        I don't know if my last message got sent.

        What are you doing in what type of setup?  Mirroring and other
technologies tend to slowthings like this down, but I can get 50 files
per second out of a dorky little shell script on a very moderate AIX PPC
machine. (166 Mhz, if I remember correctly.)

aokeeffe $ uname -a
AIX okeeffe 1 4 001C9F11E100
okeeffe $ cat mkfiles
# Creates a large number of files.
while [ $filenumber -lt 1000 ]
        echo > $filenumber
okeeffe $ time ./mkfiles
