Starting with the Flexible I/O Tester, there wasn't much change in the results for the four file-systems when upgrading to the Linux 3.10 kernel. The only file-system that changed was the F2FS performance where it regressed compared to Linux 3.9 final. The fastest file-system on the Intel SSD from the range of file-systems tested was EXT4, which was noticeably faster than XFS in second place. Btrfs for this test with the Intel IOMeter File Server Access Pattern workload was in last place.

When firing up the FS-Mark test with its workload of 1,000 files measuring in at a 1MB size, there again were no significant changes when moving to the Linux 3.10 kernel for XFS, EXT4, Btrfs, and F2FS. The fastest file-system was F2FS and followed close behind were the three other file-systems.

When dealing with four threads for FS-Mark, the performance was close to the same between the four file-systems except for the F2FS regression on Linux 3.10.
