Ok, then n_max define the numbers of slabs.

My new question is that: in every slab how many chunks are located,
this number is fixed or dynamically variable.
In my application with xml files between 15KB and 200KB, if users need
only 15KB files, the numbers of chunks in the first slab and the first
slab size increase or not?

thank you so much!
