SSD’s, Journaling, and noatime/relatime | Thoughts by Ted
The chief mechanism for benchmarking Linux filesystems seems to be operations on the Linux kernel's source tree.
This seems to me a dangerous over-optimization for kernel developer-centric usage. What if people want to put files other than the Linux kernel source on their disk? Other use cases are completely untested!
OK I'm being facetious.
Dumb questions: Are snapshotted filesystems like btrfs, and version control systems like git two things that could converge, or do they just look like they could converge and really never will?
