comment 218TB XFS LVM filesystem. 144TB Free. Error message “No Free Space Left on Device”
I tried to reproduce your issue using a 218T loop device in tmpfs. The first time I tried I thought I could reproduce it (fallocate stopped after the 114th 1TB file). Subsequent tries it happily fallocates 217+ TB files. Even works with inode32. Never could reproduce why it didn't work the first time though and now I'm unsure if I imagined it... ;)

Isn't inode64 the default?

comment Booting Gentoo on LVM inside LUKS with gpg encrypted keyfile
gpg is a nasty bit of work. I prefer using cryptsetup to encrypt keyfiles. Why use two encryption programs when you can just use the one?

comment How to automatically check for failed hard drives in RAID array?
With Software RAID, mdadm can be configured to monitor RAIDs and send mail when things go south. Hardware RAID probably does the same but it depends on the manufacturer and their tools. Maybe you should elaborate your setup.

Put it in your crypttab + fstab and have an initramfs that opens it before everything else.

comment luks volume disappears after reboot
/dev/mapper/db_fips/ has one / too many. Also did you ever luksOpen or enter your passphrase after reboot? An encrypted volume has to be opened first.

Not sure about system-uuid, but would the NIC's MAC-address work?
