A few days ago I ran some fresh hard drive file-system benchmarks on Linux 4.0 and today those results are being complemented by the solid-state drive results. Tested on the SSD were the popular EXT4, Btrfs, XFS, and F2FS file-systems.

The benchmarks in this article are looking at the EXT4 / Btrfs / XFS / F2FS file-systems under the Linux 4.0 Git kernel as well as the Linux 3.19.0 stable kernel. These four file-systems were tested on a 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 solid-state drive. The stock mount options for each file-system on Linux 3.19/4.0 were used during testing.

All of this file-system benchmarking from Linux 3.19/4.0 was done in a fully-automated and reproducible manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
