DragonFlyBSD Now Defaulting To HAMMER2 File-System By Default

Written by Michael Larabel in BSD on 11 June 2019 at 12:43 AM EDT. 17 Comments
After being an experimental option in DragonFlyBSD for more than the past half-decade, HAMMER2 is the new default file-system of this FreeBSD derivative.

HAMMER2 has continued to perform increasingly well over the conventional HAMMER file-system. It's also been easy to install HAMMER2 on new DragonFlyBSD installations. But finally now with the latest development code for DragonFlyBSD 5.6 (or perhaps DragonFlyBSD 6.0?) this file-system is enabled as the new default.

The changeover happened today and the old HAMMER(1) file-system remains available for those interested.
