Well, there's
And the manpage to 'mkfs.ext3' and 'mount' do also mention some tunables.

But first you need to find out what you want your fs to tune for? Lots of

And don't forget to measure performance with the application you intend to
run. Benchmark programs like bonnie++ and stuff might help, but you're
probably only interested how your application will perform.
