Re: XFS vs. ext3



Basicali it is normal for XFS to outperform ext2/3 in your case. High
badwidth is the main goal in XFS design ( read about it on sgi.com ).

Especialy ext3 in ordered mode. XFS can only work in write-back (the
fastest) mode.

>From all that I am reading about the linux filesystems, and from my
personal experience, it seems that ext2/3 is the slowest comparing to
ReiserFS,JFS,XFS.

BUT it is the most robust filesystem that you can find for linux.

Try this:
-------------
mkfs.ext2 /dev/hd?? about 500-1000 MB
mount /dev/hd?? /mnt/????
cp -a /usr/doc /mnt/???? or anything else, just fill it with files
umount /mnt/????
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hd?? bs=1024 count=100000
fsck.ext2 -f -y /dev/hd??
mount /dev/hd?? /mnt/????
-------------
Now check what is recovered: Allmost everything, but the blocks that was
filled with NULLs.

Try this with ReiserFS or XFS :))
