[OpenAFS] Best practice: inode or namei fileserver?

Hi all,

We are currently running inode-based fileservers on solaris 9.

I stumbled across the fact that solaris 9 -9/05HW makes logging the
default on UFS. I know that the AFS finode-based fileserver cannot work
with a logging filesystem.

Does the namei filesystem play nice with logging filesystems?

Going forward, which format is recommended, inode or namei?

I'm wondering if I should slowly migrate to namei.
