 The Secret World of ReiserFS

Newsfactor looks into the secret world of ReiserFS.

"Hans Reiser created filesystem benchmarking tests designed to be fairly representative of the file-size distribution of most users. About 80 percent of the files in the benchmark are 8K or smaller, 80 percent of the remaining files are 80K and smaller, and the remainder are 800K and smaller. "Reiser4 does quite well on all benchmarks," Reiser said. "With [Reiser4], we took five different technical gambles, and all of them worked. The result is very high performance.""
