thinking about giving up my old benchmark frontpage and posting benchmark results right here in this weblog. Easier for me to maintain and much healthier for your eyes ;-)
Let me start with all the old stuff first, my next post will deal with more current data:
The filesystems tested are the usual suspects: ext2, ext3, jfs, reiser, reiser4 (only a few results available) and xfs for different kernels and different benchmark programs like tiobench, Bonnie++, ioZone and even generic system tools like cp, rm, tar, dd. Also loop-aes was used to test encrypted volumes as well.
I've used several benchmark scripts, starting with tio-bench.sh, which has been superseded by bench.sh. And here's yet another one, I've forgotten when I was using this though. Being ugly as hell they served my needs and all they did was executing these commands:
bonnie++ -f -s 2048 -r 0 -n 10:10240:10 tiobench.pl --size 2048 --numruns 1 iozone -s 2048 -f /mnt/bench/iozone.img tar -xjf linux.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/bench/tarball find /mnt/bench/tarball cp -a /mnt/bench/tarball /mnt/bench/tarball_copy rm -rf /mnt/bench/tarball dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/bench/test.img bs=1M count=2048 dd if=/mnt/bench/test.img of=/dev/null bs=1M count=2048the mount options used:
