I had a terrible XFS crash early on with myth. Basically the FS
collapsed without warning, losing all data on a 500 GB RAID and locking
up the server.
I've replaced it with JFS and have had no problems since.
I run jfs on a RAID-5 and ext3 on RAID-5. I'd recommend both/either.
The performance of JFS is OK; I've not noticed any performance
problems. Mostly my backend is CPU and memory bound.
