Maximum number of inodes in a directory?


Question

Is there a maximum number of inodes in a single directory?

I have a directory of over 2 million files and can't get the ls command to work against that directory. So now I'm wondering if I've exceeded a limit on inodes in Linux. Is there a limit before a 2^64 numerical limit?

df -i should tell you the number of inodes used and free on the file system.
