Benchmarking The Experimental Bcachefs File-System Against Btrfs, EXT4, F2FS, XFS & ZFS
Unfortunately, Bcachefs didn't have a good showing in the application start-up time tests where there is background I/O happening. Bcachefs was generally towards the back of the file-systems tested while ZFS On Linux 0.8.1 was leading the way.
Bcachefs did show much more promising results in the SQLite embedded database library test. Bcachefs here was able to offer performance just behind EXT4 and F2FS while being much faster than ZFS and Btrfs. The XFS result was too quick to accurately record from this Optane 900p drive.
