Btrfs/EXT4/XFS/F2FS RAID 0/1/5/6/10 Linux Benchmarks On Four SSDs

F2FS was back in front for FS-Mark with the final test: 4k files, 32 sub directories, 1MB file sizes.

The native Btrfs RAID support was performing admirably compared to the other Linux file-systems relying on mdadm-based RAID support.

Lastly, with Compile Bench, F2FS was overall the fastest for this RAID 0/1/5/6/10 benchmarking.

If you're evaluating file-systems for Linux RAID, hopefully this plethoras of numbers was useful. To see how your own Linux system -- whether it is a RAID array or single disk -- compares, install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1411054-LI-BTRFSRAID55. You can also run many other Linux disk benchmarks via the open-source Phoronix Test Suite automated benchmarking software.
