    Re: Which file system to use with Debian? (Score: 1)

    This benchmark is worthless.

    ext3 does not only journal metadata (like ReiserFS), but in it’s default mode

    it wait’s until all userdata is written to disk BEFOREW committing the metadata

    To have similar behaviour, ext3 must use “data=writeback”, which uses

    metadata journalling ONLY.

    Also: Keep in mind that ReiserFS gets patches all the time. The code simply is unreliable, changes all the time. KISS. And ext3 is clearly the simplest solution

    A pretty hasty jump to conclusions here… I agree that Reiser is a good solution out of those, but I still prefer XFS which wasn’t even in the comparison.

    I use XFS but at home and at work on our production servers. I’m very happy with XFS. The biggest problem with XFS is that it’s not part of the main kernel.

    If you want something reliable I would use FFS with softupdates.

    Debian on NetBSD will give you FFS+softupdates (Score: 0)

    Use one of the BSDs.

    If you need Debian (why?) you can use Debian on NetBSD, o/w just use OpenBSD.

    Check for servers with longest uptime = BSD.

    BTW, this is posted from Woody on XFS, but that’s a laptop.
