Hammering with HAMMER, and other filesystems

If you’ve been wanting to really tax the heck out of your filesystem – whether or not it’s HAMMER – here’s a good way to do so.

On a similar tangent, Dimitri Nikulin and Aggelos Economopoulos mentioned several other filesystem projects that may be fun to read about: POHMELFS, Btrfs, and CRFS.

    From http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/bugs/2008-06/msg00047.html:

    > /tmp/fsx -S 123424 -c 100000 -l 4194304 -o 262144 -P /tmp/ test.fsx.dat

    isn’t this just stressing the /tmp filesystem? (which should be MFS, not HAMMER)

    I don’t think so, I’ve never run it so I cannot tell you for sure.

    Needless to say Matt Dillon is certainly no stranger to FSX ;O)

  3. […] has an article about Linux’s ext4 and its segue into btrfs, which has been mentioned here before in contrast to Hammer.  […]
