There are many use cases for a filesystem - if you have mostly very large
files, the defaults in newfs reserve too many inodes per X number of blocks
- if you have mostly small files, there will be too few.  It takes
experience and a little luck to create filesystem in which free blocks and
free inodes get consumed proportionally.  Start by reading the man page and
grok deeply.
