Testing Btrfs On The Linux 3.16 Kernel

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

When running my initial Linux 3.16 file-system tests on an SSD I had to skip over Btrfs due to initial problems with the experimental kernel code. Fortunately, Btrfs has been fixed-up in Linux 3.16 and can now serve for some benchmarking.

As F2FS, XFS, and EXT4 were already tested on a solid-state drive using Linux 3.16 Git, in this article I'm just testing Btrfs when using the Linux 3.15 stable kernel against the Linux 3.16 Git kernel from 2 July. This Btrfs testing happened from an ASUS UX32VDA Core i7 Ivy Bridge ultrabook with 128GB SanDisk SD5SF212 SSD. A daily snapshot of Ubuntu 14.10 was used for testing while the kernel snapshots were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA for easy reproducibility.

“LEDE” OpenWrt fork promises greater openness

A “Linux Embedded Development Environment” (LEDE) fork of the lightweight, router-oriented OpenWrt Linux distribution vows greater transparency and inclusiveness. Some core developers of the OpenWrt community has forked off into a Linux Embedded Development Environment (LEDE) group. LEDE is billed as both a “reboot” and “spinoff” of the lightweight, router-focused distribution that aims to build an open source embedded Linux distro that “makes it easy for developers, system administrators or other Linux enthusiasts to build and customize software for embedded devices, especially wireless routers.” Read more
