    Question BTRFS - compress=lzo; Why not EXT4 - compress=lzo?

    I don't know much about filesystems other than than I depend on them every day
    So my thought about this after reading several filesystem comparisons at Phoronix is;
    if BTRFS experience such a great benefit using LZO compression, why not apply the same technology on EXT4?

    Not exactly the answer I was looking for. Actually it would be better to not respond at all when you don't have a clue. As a senior member of this forum you should know better.

    I do believe there are patches floating around for transparent compression on ext2, but the either the kernel guys didn't show much interest or it wasn't up to the coding standards.

    It supports bzip2, gzip9, gzip6, gzip3, lzrw3a, lzv1, and lzo compression methods.
