Dear List readers and netbsd devels, what is the current usability state of the LFS (Log-structured File System)? Is it ready for productional use or still to understand as under development? Is there any active roadmap? Did someone have practical experiences (stability, performance, handling...) with LFS within productive environments? Are there any other interesting alternatives under NetBSD? Did someone played or worked with other filesystem alternatives for large hard disks (i.e. some cluster FS's a.o.) then the default FFS with interesting results? I'm using NetBSD 4.0 and 4.99.73 (and sometimes other *BSD's) for different productive internet servers (i.e. email servers) - under xen and wo - on SAS based disk RAID's (10 and 5) and my idea is to use / switch over to a LSF for my larger email-storages. My main target's are: - fast recovery (i.e. after a crash / power disruption) - fast file access (i.e. mail space under cyrus imap) - minimized data losses after crash or medium failures There are different infos about the roadmap and the current state of LFS around in the net - like here: ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-4.0/CHANGES-4.0 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Log-structured_File_System_(BSD) or here http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_a_server_with_a_root_lfs_partition many thanks for any hint o tip in this issue and - for you all here - have a nice easter-weekend, Niels. -- --- Niels Dettenbach --- Syndicat IT&Internet http://www.syndicat.com T.-Muentzer.-Str. 2, 37308 Heilbad Heiligenstadt - DE --- Kryptoinfo: PGP public key ID 651CA20D Fingerprint: 55E0 4DCD B04C 4A49 1586 88AE 54DC 4465 651C A20D https://syndicat.com/pub_key.asc ---
