Linux RAID Performance On NVMe M.2 SSDs With EXT4, Btrfs, F2FS

Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 16 September 2017. Page 5 of 5. 18 Comments

During the timed Linux kernel compilation process, using Btrfs led to a slightly shorter build time while the other configurations didn't see much change in performance.

While with the smaller code-base of LLVM (but still huge compared to most code-bases), the file-system wasn't impairing the compilation performance.

If you want to see how your own Linux system(s) I/O performance compares to these different tests on two NVMe SSDs, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1709169-TY-AMDEPYCLI60.
