Benchmarking Linux 2.6 Filesystems
Anonymous Reader writes "KernelTrap has an interesting article about a recent benchmark conducted to compare five journaling filesystems available with the current 2.6.0-test2 Linux development kernel. The tests were conducted with a very simple shell script, mainly timing how long it takes to copy, tar, and remove directories. Looks like for this test reiser4 is the fastest filesystem at the expense of consuming much more CPU, with ext3 trailing a ways behind."
