i am not!
I did a lot of benckmarking with bonnie++ on a 450 GB filesystem.
i was testing ext3, gfs2, and gfs
ext3 is obviously the fastest, but i nees a clustered file system, so
it was only teken as a "best measure".
Then i tried gfs2 and gfs, with one, two and three server writing with
bonnie++ at the same time.

The result showed gfs2 better than gfs in almost every bonnie++ test,
and it was close enought to ext3 to use it.

But always think that is a clustered filesystem!

Then now i wait for your result on a bigger 8TB fs.
