RE: IBM has released JFS 1.0.0



The advantage of any journaling filesystem is the journaling.  It's like
having the cache on disk.  That way if the system reboots you do not have to
go through the fscks.  I sysadmin one systems that has 12 hard drives in it,
most in the 60 to 80 gig range.  If this system get rebooted and has to go
through filesystem checks, it takes 6 hours to do the checks.  As the size
of hard drives increase, the need for journaling filesystems will become
more and more apparent.  I have used XFS on SGI/IRIX boxen for years and it
is just amazing how well this works.
