XFS is fairly memory intensive.    11TB file systems tend to mean 
millions and millions of files.

frankly, I wouldn't run this on CentOS 5.6, I would upgrade to CentOS 
6.latest and then I would use XFS....   support for EXT4 and XFS is 
rather sketchy with the old kernel in 5.x (and why aren't you at 5.8 or 
whatever is current in the 5 series anyways?!?)
