Btrfs struggles with the SQLite benchmark (similar to the PostgreSQL PGbench), but the widely-common EXT4 file-system was almost twice as fast as ZFS-FUSE on Linux.

EXT4, Btrfs, and ZFS on OpenSolaris all ran well and close to each other while ZFS-FUSE -- both the 0.6.9 stable and 0.7.0 development snapshot -- lagged well behind.

Btrfs was three times faster here than ZFS-FUSE and more than four and a third times faster was EXT4. The native ZFS performance on OpenSolaris was right on par with Btrfs in the Linux 2.6.36 kernel.
