Running ZFS On The Linux 4.1 Kernel
Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 7 July 2015. Page 3 of 3. 26 Comments

ZFS was running on the lower half of the Linux file-systems with the compile bench test run.

With the PostgreSQL database benchmark, ZFS was the slowest file-system tested on this single SSD with the default mount options.

Well, that's what the out-of-the-box ZFS On Linux performance looked like for this desktop system with a SATA3 SSD. If you're interested in seeing other ZFS Linux benchmarks in different configurations (and/or other file-systems), please voice your thoughts by commenting on this article in our forums.
