Testing EXT4 & Btrfs On A Serial ATA 3.0 SSD
Phoronix: Testing EXT4 & Btrfs On A Serial ATA 3.0 SSD
Last month I wrote a review on the OCZ Vertex 3 240GB solid-state drive, which was a very impressive Serial ATA 3.0 SSD. The performance of this solid-state drive was terrific and a huge improvement over previous-generation SATA 2.0 SSDs and over SATA 3.0 hard drives. All of that testing was done when the drives were formatted to the common EXT4 file-system type, but in this article are more benchmarks from the OCZ Vertex 3 as it's tested with Btrfs and various mount options.
Combination of mount options
As space_cache and (ironically) nossd almost always seem to improve performance, it would be nice to know how btrfs performs with a combination of mount options. E.g., would btrfs + space_cache + nossd + compress=lzo get closer in performance to ext4 for the SQLite benchmark?
