4-Disk Btrfs Native RAID Performance On Linux 4.10
Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 29 January 2017. Page 3 of 3. 73 Comments

Hopefully you find these numbers interesting if you've been curious about Btrfs' native RAID capabilities. Btrfs RAID on Linux 4.10 was working out fine during my brief testing thus far and in general with my past tests on older kernels has still held up well. If you are interested in more benchmarks and technical reading can see some of my past Btrfs RAID benchmarks, with comparisons in several different setups.

Those wanting to compare their own system's disk performance to the Btrfs RAID numbers found in this article off the four consumer SSDs can simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1701291-RI-BTRFSRAID17.
