Phoronix: File-System Benchmarks On The Intel X25-E SSD
Late last month we looked at the Intel X25-E Extreme SSD on Linux. We ran this high-performance solid-state drive within a System76 Serval Notebook and compared its performance to a Seagate Momentus 7200.2 SATA HDD. During that testing we were just using the default EXT3 file-system, but now we have taken the Intel X25-E SSD for another spin as we looked at its performance when using the ReiserFS, JFS, XFS, EXT3, and EXT4 file-systems.
Is it possible that files for compilation tests are all in cache already, so Kernel never touch file system code anyway, hence same results across the board? I don't see in TFA any measures taken for clearing cache between tests.
