For all of you who want to improve your Linux security, stability and performance, Dr. Ricardo Galli, member of UIB - Balearic Islands University (Spain) and President of Bulma (the lug at Balearic Islands) has written an article called "Journal File Systems in Linux"

"This is a lightly modified version of a couple of articles published in Novática (Spanish) and Upgrade (English) where we explain the implementation of all journaling file systems available for Linux."

Ricardo Galli includes, in a plain manner, basics, characteristics and implementation of the Linux Virtual File System, Linux Page-cache and Buffer-cache, integration of page and buffer cache, journaling file systems, B-Trees, ReiserFS, XFS, JFS, Ext3, performance and conclusions, including several links to resources and benchmarks.

A Spanish version of the document is also available.
