Question ....ANY XFS FILE SYSTEM TIPS ???? anyone knows ???

Hi boys !

I've always used and still use Ext3 as default FS in almost all my distros,exception made for Pclinux Kde the second time i installed it,i've choosed Xfs and i feel very well with it,the pc is much faster in media applications and faster during the boot process than with Ext3,i can say it surely with reason because the first time i installed Pclinux Kde-i had to re-install because the hd it was on died for average and i had to buy another hd-i choosed ext3 instead...

Any way,Xfs looks like to be fabolous...

I used to type some tips on Ext3 in etc/fstab to obtain better there anything similar with Xfs ?

Anyone Knows ?

Thanks anyway !

Create your filesystem manually with mkfs.xfs -l size=64m /dev/???

Mount it in fstab with noatime, nodiratime, logbufs=8.

This is a solution to one of the few problems where xfs has traditionally performed worse then other filesystems: file deletion.

You could also use more than the default number of allocation groups for faster writes but this can be counter-productive. Having many such allocation groups on a partition that is filling up will result in much higher CPU usage.
