    Lately I did some tests with btrfs and XFS.
    My "storage" disk was dying rapidly and I bought a new one, size 2TB.

    First I formatted it with btrfs, restored the data from backup (music, videos, pictures, virtual machines, ...).
    Then I started the first virtual machine and the performance was so horrible, that I wiped the disk, reformatted it with XFS, restored the data ...
    And the virtual machines were running well again.

    I am not 100% sure, that it was only the fault of btrfs, but XFS was the solution.
    The old disk was formatted with ext4; with good performance and no problems.

    It is not currently recommended to use btrfs with virtual images or
    databases.

    I know, but I did not expect it to be _that_ bad.

    What I don't know is the reason.
    Maybe it copes better with files that are rewritten instead of modified
    in place.

    Hi to you all,

    It's been 15 months since the last post in this topic.

    Are there any new "views" on btrfs/xfs and ext4?

    I always worked with ext4 and I'm curious what btrfs would bring me.
    More stabillity? More speed? More ......?

    Grtz

    Better start a new thread. Almost nobody wll look at this old thread anymore. A new thread will be seen by many.

    This old one is CLOSED.
