F2FS File-System Runs Great On SDHC Storage

Earlier this week I performed some F2FS file-system benchmarks on the Linux 3.8 kernel with an Intel X25 Solid-State Drive (SSD) compared to the EXT4, Btrfs, and other file-systems. Out today are benchmarks of the Flash-Friendly File-System from an SDHC card on Linux.

This benchmarking of F2FS on an SDHC card isn't as nearly exhaustive as the SSD benchmarking of F2FS earlier in the week that also draw in EXT4, Btrfs, JFS, XFS, and ReiserFS. Due to the slower speeds of the SDHC card, only EXT4 and Btrfs were used as comparison against F2FS. Tux3 also isn't being tested in this article due to it not yet being mainline.

The SDHC card being used for this benchmarking was a Patriot LX Series 16GB Class 10 SDHC card. Benchmarking occurred from an Intel Core i5 "Sandy Bridge" laptop running Ubuntu 13.04 with the vanilla Linux 3.8 final kernel.

Coming in a separate article will also be benchmarks of the F2FS Linux file-system when tested on USB flash storage. Overall the results in this article show F2FS as being capable of outperforming EXT4 and Btrfs from the SDHC storage.
