Re: Ext3 vs. Reiser?

I've done Squid benchmarks, which the benchmark software license prohibits publishing...But the short of it is that ReiserFS is still about 15% faster for Squid workloads than the ext[2|3] family. ext3 in writeback mode actually seems to weather the load better than ext2 for some reason though peak throughput is about the same (i.e. the Squid process doesn't become hopelessly overloaded as quickly, but the point at which it begins to degrade is roughly the same).

I was just wondering how Ext3 and Reiserfs compare. When I reinstalled my
server (because of a stupid hacker) I took the opportunity to change to
ReiserFS. And I have to say it's really much faster than Ext3.

So what's some highlights on Ext3 vs. ReiserFS? I guess the Ext2 compability
is one large factor for using Ext3, but otherwise?

I ran some benchmarks recently to test performance of several Linux filesystems under heavey synchronous load (ie a mail server). For this, ext3 data=journal was nearly twice as fast as ReiserFS.
