What you want to read is this:


The one time I managed to get through to the referenced URL
http://aurora.zemris.fer.hr/filesystems/big.html (IIRC), I think it
basically said:

	- JFS performs comparatively well with large files.
	- ReiserFS performs comparatively well with small files.
	- XFS performs comparatively well with both, but uses more CPU.

(This is also basically stated in the Myth docs.)

FWIW, I've been using JFS with no problems for the 4 months or so I've
been Myth'ing, across a few kernel upgrades (2.6.9, 2.6.11, 2.6.12),
and one bad system failure (simultaneous death of PSU and motherboard,
or perhaps one leading to the other). My distribution is
debian-sarge/ubuntu-hoary on amd64.
