Maybe running aging on a 5TB fs is not such a good idea.  I think it
would be better to run it on a smaller array size (1TB maybe).  I
suspect that one of the reasons this is taking so long is that with 4TB
of small files, the rbtree in FFSB would be huge and could be larger
than the 2GB of memory you are running on your system, causing you to

Running on a smaller FS should still give a good idea of how well the
filesystems avoid fragmentation.
