The First Benchmarks of the ext4 Filesystem

Saturday, October 21, 2006

"Seeing that the development of the ext3 file system successor has started, and that Andrew Morton has released mm patch containing ext4 file system, I decided to run some simple benchmarks, even in this early stage of development.
Because the mm patch also contains Hans Reiser's reiser4 file system, I decided to run benchmarks against it, too, for a good measure. Let me once again remind that both ext4 and reiser4 are still in development, while ext3 has been in production for many years, so take all the results below with a grain of salt." Read more.

Note from the Nerd: Well, this looks pretty nice. ext4 is already out performing ext3 and reiser4. Still, all three file systems have their strengths and their weaknessess. I'd like to see some more benchmarks when ext4 is fully ripe.
