Submission + - BTRFS vs EXT3 vs EXT4 vs XFS performance on Fedora 17 (ilsistemista.net)

An anonymous reader writes: Linux filesystems are a moving target: each new kernel release can potentially alter their performance and reliability. So, its interesting to periodically measure filesystems performance. This time, I used the newly-released Fedora 17 (amd64 version, 3.4.x kernel branch). We already know the contenders:

ext3, the classic Linux filesystem
ext4, the natural ext3 successor as default Linux filesystem
xfs, an high performance filesystem designed with scalability in mind
btrfs, the new, actively developed, feature-rich filesystem (which, recently, has been propesed as the new Linux default filesystem)
