The Linux operating system provides a number of file systems that can be used, as well as volume management and hardware or software RAID. We are running performance benchmarks for database tuning, and are curious if the file systems really behave like we expect them to, especially when used in conjunction with RAID or volume management. Are these file systems being used in manners for which they were designed? There is also more to file systems than how fast we can read to them or how fast we can write to them. How reliable is the file system, and how do be prove it? We have collected data and will have a server available for development during the conference.
