Page Extent Size (PE) represents size of the smallest building block of Logical Volume. In DSS V6 it is set by default to 32MB. That means that every created LV will be 32 x N MB large.

Block size of NAS volume are chosen automatically depending on size of LV to optimize performance.

User has no possibility to change those parameters.
