ZFS vs. EXT4 On Linux Multi-Disk RAID Benchmarks
Phoronix: ZFS vs. EXT4 On Linux Multi-Disk RAID Benchmarks
When dealing with multi-disk configurations and RAID, the ZFS file-system on Linux can begin to outperform EXT4 at least in some configurations...
My XFS test (test1) across 8 x 1TB (Hitachi laptop 5K1000) RAID5 (Adaptec 52445)
Note, the 8 x 1TB are split across two ports of the Adaptec 52445 (4 drives on each).
HW raid FTW... or maybe something else??
(just for comparison purposes... why not put the whole disk benchmark set?.. noting that the testsuite failed to get some modules in my test1 case)
BTRFS apologists proven wrong
BTRFS apologists love to make excuses as to why BTRFS is slower than EXT4 by claiming that the more numerous features of BTRFS invariably yield slower function on bread-and-butter filesystem tasks. Well, take that! ZFS does more things and is faster than EXT4 at the same time! What excuses will they come up with now??
