Linux Filesystems Benchmarked

Filed under

Choosing the right filesystem for a particular job can be a difficult task. We tested seven candidates and found some interesting results to make an administrator’s choice easier.

Admins building a new server or setting up a new storage device have to make important decisions on the basis of predicted usage. Does the server need to write millions of files quickly to keep the backup window manageable, or does it need to deliver multiple-gigabyte virtualization images within seconds?

The choice of filesystem can make a huge difference in such cases, so Linux Magazine put seven filesystems through numerous tests. The results of the benchmarks in this article could help readers choose the most appropriate filesystem for the task at hand.

If they were asked to write code for an unethical purpose, 59 percent would say no, but another 37 percent of developers were non-committal about whether they would comply. In another question, only about 5 percent said they definitely not report unethical problems with code. But sounding the alarm is about as far as most people will go.
