"We're using the same benchmark from the last article and applying it to additional Linux file systems - xfs, jfs, reiserfs, ext2, and resier4. As you are probably aware there are a large number of file systems available in Linux from some fairly old ones such as ext2, to some that are still considered "experimental" in the latest kernel (2.6.30 as of this writing) such as btrfs and nilfs2. But these other file systems, ext2, xfs, jfs, reiserfs are still in production use in a number of places. Consequently this article performs the same benchmarks as the previous article on these additional file systems. It also adds in reiser4 which, believe it or not, is still moving ahead thanks to the determination of some of the developers."
