Ext2 Vs Ext3
Hi friends....feelin good to be back after a day's break!
Let me ask u guys something that I have been wanting to ask since a long long time...and i am sure, I'll get my answers from someone among u people....so here it goes..
Well, we all install linux on our systems..but most of us rarely notice that earlier versions of linux used to be installed on ext2 filesystems - better known as 'Linux Native' filesystem.
But now, we install this on ext3 filesystem.
My question is, what are the differences between ext2 and ext3 filesystems....
I'd appreciate if I find some detailed answers...:)
Try this page.
It gives a description of both.
Thanx for the info Xavier....Will need some time to check out the entire article....
One more thing, there's a defragmentation application on the same page..
do u think, ext3 fs gets defragmented? and is it necessary to run the defrag tool??? and if one does use it, does it promise faster performance??
anyone before used a defrag tool in linux???
There are defrag tools available for Linux - but Linux tends not to get defragmented. A recent post said that this is to do with Linux being a true multi user system.
Have a look here for a recent discussion.
