Found em, xfsprogs.  For some reason I thought this was part of X Font Server.

XFS came from SGI.  We use the cluster version, called CXFS, to provide
a 20 TB workspace for a pair of 512-processor Origin 3900 systems
(running IRIX, not Linux) doing scientific computing.  Our sister site
in Ohio uses it on an Altix 3700 BX2 (Itanium) cluster (4 nodes of 512
processors each) to provide a 100 TB workspace.  XFS should work fine
for your 3.5 TB server.
