SubjectRe: [Lse-tech] Re: ext3 performance bottleneck as the number of spindles gets large
This web site may be of interest for this discussion:
http://labs.zianet.com. I have benchmarks using NFS
with ext3 there. It also compares ext3 with ReiserFS.
The page is not quite complete but it has the
benchmarks up.
