I have used xfs quite extensively on SGI systems, and have heard about SGI delivering the goods to the Linux world. Some features of the
filesystem (especially direct I/O access for io intesive applications like video production and the ability to maintain internal or external
logging volumes a la xlv) make it a very tempting bet for Linux in the future. Have you heard more information on this?


Yes, please.  I am also an xfs "fan"....the early versions had a couple of
holes, in particular I discovered that a particular operation would leave
the fs in an inconsistent state.  The situation was a little unusual, as it
came out of a test suite testing "allowable" operations that nobody would
be very likely to try in "real life", but that problem has been cleaned up
and the code on IRIX is quite mature now.
