IOzone Performance Exploration, Part 2

Filed under
Linux

In our previous Part 1 of this series we looked at the IOzone performance for ext3, ext4, and reiser4 using larger size record lengths (1MB, 4MB, 8MB, 16MB). The results are interesting because they unexpectedly showed some trends in performance that are independent of the file system. These observations are important if you take the results from a single record size run of IOzone and apply it to other record sizes (which you shouldn’t do).

In this article the number of file systems is extended to add most of the major file systems in Linux, even the experimental ones. This article adds ext2, jfs, xfs, btrfs, and reiserfs. As with the metadata benchmarks the purpose of this study is not to compare file systems and pick the “best” one (insert your definition of “best”). Rather, this study is an exploration of the performance of various Linux file systems using a single throughput benchmark. So the focus of this article is to explore how Linux file systems perform when IOzone is the benchmark.

It's Been Three Years Since "GNOME 4.0" Was Proposed

Three years ago this week was GUADEC 2012 where GNOME 4.0 was proposed along with GNOME OS. While GNOME 4.0 was supposed to materialize in 2014, that obviously didn't happen, but at least GNOME 3.x has matured a lot and garnered much better support than it had years ago. Read more

The FSF's statement on Windows 10

BOSTON, Massachusetts, USA -- Thursday, July 30, 2015 -- The Free Software Foundation urges everyone to reject Windows 10 and join us in the world of free software. Like all proprietary software, Windows 10 puts those that use it under the thumb of its owner. Free software like the GNU/Linux operating system treats users as equals and gives them control over their digital lives. Read more Also: Safeguarding Choice and Control Online

More AMD Radeon R9 Fury Linux Benchmarks

Continuing on from yesterday's first Linux review of the AMD Radeon R9 Fury, here are some more Catalyst Linux benchmarks from this $550 graphics card. Since yesterday's review of the R9 Fury on Ubuntu Linux I have run some more tests covering a few other test profiles as well as delivering some more 1920 x 1080 and 2560 x 1440 (rather than 4K) benchmarks for those wishing to run their own side-by-side comparisons against this air-cooled Fiji graphics card with 4GB of High Bandwidth Memory.
