"that depends" - it is highly dependent on the type of disk activity you
There are various reviews of both FSes circulating.
Personal observation: GFS and GFS2 currently have utterly rotten
performance for activities involving many small files, such as NFS
exporting /home via NFS sync mounts. They also fails miserably if there
are a lot of files in a single directory (more than 5-700, with things
getting unusable beyond about 1500 files)
I have not used OCFS2 in production environments, so I cannot comment on
its performance in these scenarios.
