On a relatively new BM 3.8.2 server with 2 x 5Gb dedicated traditional cache volumes each with 256 directories we're getting a lot of notifications along the lines of:

Available Directory Entries on server XXXX is in a BAD State, Please Check the server.

I know I could turn off the mail notification but I was just curious - the total directory entries on the volumes keep climbing, so does this mean we can just ignore the messages until the cache volumes fill up and stop generating them? Is there any way we can set the directory entries to a higher number manually? Are we doing something silly?
