Has anyone ever added an external journal to a mature FS?
Reiser or ext3?

I'm wondering of adding a new logical volume on my LVM for each of my
journalled file systems would be of use? How large should something
like that be?

Does anyone have experience with adding a journal 'after the fact'?
Or with the journal being on a LVM

Adding a joural to make ext2 into ext3 is quite easy. I've never tried
converting ext2 to Reiser.


I think he was talking about internal vs. external journaling.

I assume all of the journaling file systems support both.
