Tuning Btrfs vs. F2FS, EXT4, XFS File-Systems

When earlier this week delivering Btrfs benchmarks with various mount options for tuning the next-generation Linux file-system, some Linux users were hoping to see other file-systems tossed into the test mix too for reference. Here's those numbers.

When it comes to the stock performance, I have already benchmarked a Linux 3.9 HDD and SSD comparison with the EXT4, Btrfs, XFS, and F2FS file-systems.

In this article are results from the tuned Btrfs numbers against the stock EXT4, F2FS, and XFS file-systems on the Linux 3.8 and 3.9 kernels. This isn't about producing tuning results for those other file-systems in this article, but just to add additional perspective for the Btrfs numbers from earlier this week. Testing EXT4 and F2FS with various tunables will come in a later Phoronix article. This posting is mainly about satisfying reader requests for some additional data points on the earlier results to see if tuning Btrfs can make it more competitive to XFS, EXT4, and F2FS.

All of the system hardware/software details, system logs, and all of the disk/file-system benchmark results in full can be found on OpenBenchmarking.org. Embedded below are just a preview of these results, which was on the same system as before with a solid-state drive.

View the rest of these different Linux file-system benchmark results at OpenBenchmarking.org.
