Seriously, post to the XFS list. They get end-user questions
fairly often and are pretty friendly about helping out.

I've been really surprised how much help the give people working
with raid systems.

What Greg said. ++

Note that you'll get a much friendlier reception if you post all the
information they ask for when you ask your question

Might be worth skimming the rest of the FAQ too. You'll be talking
direct to the devs, and likely getting a response from them.

I am seeing how to collect the information they may want. Thanks for
the pointer.

FTHOI, I changed my app to write to either /dev/null or a file on a
tmpfs partition. Oddly, both reported the same 10 msecs to perform the
operations. I would have thought that the tmpfs write would take a bit
longer as it really happens, while the /dev/null write is simply
discarded. Unless this indicates some problem with my metric.

The difference between to a character device and to a file in memory is
probably not really measurable for one operation.
