I ran  "lvcreate -L 2400G -i8 -I512 -n volume-name group-name".  And I tried various numbers, 512 was the greatest I could set but does not seem to be crucial for performance.

File size are typically a few megabytes. I guess the file abstraction is not visible
on the LVM layer though, but at least there won't be many blocks with a lot
of unused space.
