8-Way Linux 3.13 File-System Benchmarks

With the first FS-Mark test run of using 1,000 1MB files, JFS was the clear-cut leader by the numbers and followed by NILFS2 while all the other Linux file-systems trailed far behind. This, however, is likely not the complete case and likely comes down to syncing to the disk with JFS/NILFS2 as often as the other file-systems, which can lead to higher numbers but at the potential for data loss in cases of power loss or system problems.

When dealing with four FS-Mark threads, NILFS2 and JFS were still the leaders but the other file-systems like EXT4 weren't too far behind. The two slowest file-systems were EXT3 and the FUSE-based NTFS.
