    Default Linux 3.13 Kernel HDD File-System Benchmarks

    Phoronix: Linux 3.13 Kernel HDD File-System Benchmarks

    The Christmas benchmarks we have to share on Phoronix today are of testing the XFS, Btrfs, and EXT4 file-systems on the Linux 3.13 development kernel compared to Linux 3.12 from a high-performance hard drive. Earlier this month results were shared on Phoronix that indicated file-systems on a solid-state drive slowing down with this new Linux kernel, but is that also the case for HDDs?

    Thanks for these benchmarks. I really hope the regressions get fixed once the block layer merge is done.

    bench shows 3.12 kernel prevails... What's the cause of this regression?

    3,12 preavails... 3.13 regression 3.14 improves the regression. Good job.

    In 3.13 they changed the kernel's block layer which could explain the regressions. I hoped to see at least an improvement in 3.14 over 3.13 (compile bench etc), but it looks like that is not the case...
