bkero: web1109: look in $HOME/.phoronix-test-suite/ in the xml files
wao: what is reason that performance of filesystems from 18.104.22.168 kernel decreases at 2.6.31-.33 ?
wao: like, write of ext4 is 85M/s at .29, and at .32 is just ~60M/s
wao: I can see at btrfs perfromance degradation too.
arjan: is this with the 2.4 testsuite or 2.2 ?
arjan: (one of the things changed is that newer kernels fixed some data integerity issues)
wao: like fsync or so?
wao: barriers or journaling of fs doesn't matter in this case
wao: but I consider to use btrfs w/h compression
arjan: fsync using a barrier yeah
arjan: and that barrier actually going to the drive
arjan: (older kernels didn't always to the later...w oops :)
aliendude3500: Hi, I'm having trouble getting the phoronix test suite GUI to work under Ubuntu... why on earth are you using php-gtk2? I can't even get it to compile...
aliendude3500: When trying to compile PHP GTK I get these errors: http://pastebin.com/f7e4ce586
aliendude3500: Any ideas?
aliendude3500: This channel doesn't seem to be very active... :(
muedhiver: aliendude3500: it might be a wrong automake version
muedhiver: m4 files are used by automake/autoconf
