To the best of my knowledge, the only Linux filesystem that handles this well 
is reiserfs and that's been deprecated. The only way to set the inode ratio is 
at file system create/format time. So in your case, this is indeed a "do-
over'. And you will not want to set the bytes per inode up significantly on 
root (/), /usr, or /tmp  - which is why I suggested /opt or /usr/local as 
filesystems to run xymon.
