So, I'd like to hear your stories. What's worked for you? What hasn't worked? What would you consider the pain points with using btrfs?
So, first and foremost, I'd need a statement that btrfs is now reliable enough (apparently you're hunting for exactly that) and also a comparison with ext4 proving that btrfs is better. And not just because it is new and cool and conceptually great - I want real-world facts. ---- And this is exactly the biggest problem with btrfs right now: perception. I understand where you're coming from, but this isn't the kind of response that's helpful. If the perception is to change, we need actual testing and corresponding bug reports if there are any.
I would tend to disagree, "50%". While having proof of "it's not bad
because we have 24 thousand burgers served and only 3 bugs filed, Jean has a valid point -- why would I WANT to switch from something that has 124 million burger-serving hours and no complaints? Is it faster? Is it more reliable?
What's the fastest single-threaded input/output? Multi-threaded load? (compared to other FS's on same HW at same location on disk).
How about small random read/writes? deletes How is performance when fragmented?
Where's the positive or things like "I did an accidental "mount /dev/root /mnt && rm -fr /mnt", but I was able to recover with btrfs cuz it had performed a snapshot only minutes before, and I could restore with "brtfs-restore /dev/root --time xxYyzz)....
(I.e. whatever surprisingly good stuff it has to make people wanna use it as a primary or whatever?)...
Good grief he ASKED for TESTERS. What was so hard to understand about that? You (either of you) don't want to test something? Fine, so don't test it. Other people will test it and then at some point you can enjoy the finished polished results of their testing. It doesn't require you to say "I'm not testing that because it's still in testing." Well, duh, yes it is, by definition. If he had said "We're switching the next version of opensuse to default to btrfs right now." there would be a reason to complain. He didn't say anything like that. -- bkw -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
