10-Way Linux File-System Comparison On Linux 3.10

Filed under

On the latest Linux 3.10 stable kernel we have taken ten common Linux file-systems and generated an interesting performance comparisons. The Linux file-systems being tested in this article include XFS, Btrfs, EXT2, EXT3, EXT4, ReiserFS, Reiser4, JFS, F2FS, and ZFS.

After running tests on the latest Reiser4 patch and then the latest ZFS on Linux support, I expanded the file-system testing roundabout to ten different file-systems on the ThinkPad notebook that was housing a single high-performance Intel SSD. The Intel Core i7 720QM system was running the vanilla Linux 3.10.4 kernel in a stock configuration aside from the patch for Reiser4 and then the ZFS DKMS module. All of the file-system user-space utilities were grabbed from the Ubuntu 13.10 "Saucy" repositories. Each of these file-systems is implemented for the Linux kernel and non FUSE-based file-systems were tested in this article.

However thanks to the wonders of broadband Internet and advanced software, we're now able to do the next best thing. In this article, I'll share some recommended remote desktop software for Linux. I’ll explore both open source and closed source solutions. Read more
