    At least on my ssd, it does improve writeback speeds quite a bit
    Cool, that you are on the forum. Welcome

    I think every user on this forum is wondering what Oracle have of plans once Sun is acquired in turns of btrFS and ZFS.

    Can you explain the situation there?

    Will Oracle continue to puts all its weights behind btrFS, or will ZFS take btrFS's place?

    And will ZFS be GPLv2'ed?

      Though a bit more commentary and some journalistic digging into the causes of regressions (i.e. asking on mailing lists) would be appreciated, if Phoronix (or anyone) decided to benchmark something of mine while I was working on it, I would appreciate the extra testing, as they may find a performance problem or bug that my own tests missed because I was too busy focusing on development.

        I've read the article. I'll just say "LOL" at Btrfs's SSD option: LOL

          Thanks, it is always fun to see btrfs benchmarking done. Sun doesn't really change the Btrfs development plan, we'll be pushing forward with features and generally getting the FS ready for production.

          I'm afraid I don't know any of the long term plans for licensing on Sun tech.

            Welcome and thanks, we'll definitely be checking out the newer kernel.

              Phew... I am so revealed to hear that. btrFS is just too cool to be true, so we are many that was worried, that Oracle would just use ZFS instead.

              The features I am looking the most forward to are

              * snapshots
              * Subvolumes
              * Checksums
              * defragmentation

              I think subvolumes will end up being the most used feature for many, as open SSH doesn't come with this.
