Did anyone ever see that Mel Gibson movie where he was worried everyone was watching him, and he had his house locked down and had all the conspiracy theories? Can't remember the name of the movie , but Jade missed
So if resier is getting modified so it stops screwing itself in the ear and causing problems and it slows it down its being "sabotaged".
So the car companies are deliberately making automotive engines slow and less powerful by using adequate material in connecting rods but not using adequate material in the connecting rods caused them to slam the pistons through the cylinder head.
I'm in the process of migrating my server from Windows 2003 x64 with 3 VMWare VMs to Linux with the VMs in KVM. I thought as I'd like to try KVM that Fedora 12 would be a good host to use. Fedora by default uses Ext4, but from all these tests I wonder if I should not just use Ext3 for all my filesystems. I'll have a LVM of 2 disks which will contain movies, music, software etc and one separate disk (7200 RPM, while the others are 5400) for my VMs. What would you guys use as the filesystem?
One extra remark. I never see NTFS taken along in the benchmarks. I thought that the current NTFS driver for Linux performs quite well, or doesn't it? If NTFS would be a good choice, than that one would have my preference as then I don't have to move any data around (currently all drives have NTFS as filesystem).
these benchmarks are about 2 kernel versions old I THINK. Check the kernel versions and do some performance testing of your own before you go with my response. EXT4 is supposed to scale better with large files, note how, even then, the read and write speeds of lage files gets better. Also, seeking on large files should also be better just because its an extends based filesystem. You can put everything else on ext3 but that media should be better served on ext4
