"With the 2.4 release of Linux come a host of new filesystem possibilities, including ReiserFS, XFS, GFS and others. Sure, these filesystems sound cool, but what exactly can they do, what are they good at and exactly how do you go about safely using them in a Linux production environment? In the advanced filesystem implementor's guide, Daniel Robbins answers these questions by showing you how to set up these new advanced filesystems under Linux 2.4. Along the way, he shares valuable practical implementation advice, performance information and important technical notes so that your new filesystem experience is as pleasant as possible. In this, the first article in the series, he explains the benefits of journalling and ReiserFS."
