Subject[Lse-tech] Re: ext3 performance bottleneck as the number of spindles gets large

I ran IOzone on ext2fs, ext3fs, JFS, and Reiserfs on an SMP 4-way
500MHz, 2.5GB RAM, two 9.1GB SCSI drives. The test partition is 1GB,
test file size is 128MB, test block size is 4KB, and IO threads varies
from 1 to 6. When comparing with other file system for this test
environment, the results on a 2.5.19 SMP kernel show ext3fs is having
performance problem with Writes and in particularly, with Random Write.
I think the BKL contention patch would help ext3fs, but I need to verify
it first.

The following data are throughput in MB/sec obtained from IOzone
benchmark running on all file systems installed with default options.
