Btrfs vs. F2FS Multi-SSD Performance On Linux 4.11

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Linux

Last week I posted benchmarks showing off F2FS performance with its multi-drive feature that isn't formal RAID but can still yield better I/O performance. For additional context, here are some results on that same system and with the Linux 4.11 kernel when using Btrfs with its native RAID capabilities.

After carrying out the 1/2/3/4 disk tests with F2FS on Linux 4.11 from the Core i7 6800K Broadwell-E box, I ran some Btrfs tests. For the Btrfs tests was a single disk run, two-disk RAID0, four-disk RAID0, four-disk RAID10, and four-disk RAID1 to yield some additional perspective how it compares to F2FS' multi-drive capability that makes just one big volume but with modified block allocation and background garbage collection differences to boost I/O speed.

  • Google’s New Home for All Things Open Source Runs Deep
    Google is not only one of the biggest contributors to the open source community but also has a strong track record of delivering open source tools and platforms that give birth to robust technology ecosystems. Just witness the momentum that Android and Kubernetes now have. Recently, Google launched a new home for its open source projects, processes, and initiatives. The site runs deep and has several avenues worth investigating. Here is a tour and some highlights worth noting.
