Re: [linux-lvm] cache buffer size



Thank you, Mr.Mauelshagen

JFS can not have fixed block size. But I heard from JFS group in IBM
that on 2.5 or later it will be improved. I do not know JFS will have
fixed block size or not. They said 'improved'.

I think LVM(2?) will be able to handle non-consitant block size on
2.5 well.
