Heh, ummm....

Performance penalty for kernel-space vs user-space filesystems. FUSE, the Linux userspace filesystem, is new and cool. But how well does it perform?

The AMD dual-core and Intel dual-core processors are quite a bit different architecturally. Explore the performance characteristics and memory access characteristics of both architectures.

That's all I've got on the top of my head

Hmm.. So FUSE it is.. Thanks for all your support. Would some one also tell me a few more points to research on it.. Just some other options..

Well, if you want a co-author I might be able to offer you some more assistance

You should probably take it from here. FUSE is easy to experiment with and use. I'm sure you'll run into something interesting if you take a look at their website.

The Point is that there've been lots of (Infact all types of Filesystems) developed in FUSE. I find no point in creating a new filesystem. So help is needed in this regard. I would like to research the finer points, but there is little or no documentation available and my time of proposal submission is down to a week now. Hence i need help, i would definately be then researching those issues during my research.

I think that the "finer points" are:
  • Security of userspace filesystem vs. kernel-space filesystem.
  • Performance of userspace filesystem vs. kernel-space filesystem.

I remember there being some controversy when FUSE was added to the mainline kernel. The devs were not sure how they felt about userspace filesystems.

It needs to be shown that these FUSE filesystems will be good for the community and will not impose significant security threats or performance bottlenecks.
