btrfs or EXT4

btrfs or EXT4

Postby dkobelak » Sat Aug 03, 2019 2:04 am

not sure if anyone has much experience with this, especially that it is new to Asustor.. I will be recreating my volume and I'm debating if i should stick to EXT4 or the new btrfs.. i read some older posts from other forums and it seems there was some issues with btrfs RAID if running as RAID5/6.. i dont think i will be using snapshots at all for now so I don't really care for that feature..
i mostly have very large video files stored on the NAS and that's about it.. anyone has any insight on btrfs and ASUSTOR?

Did you see my performance comparison between BTRFS and EXT4? BTRFS is overall a little slower. I've been using BTRFS for about two months without any issues. Whether its a better file system is not totally clear to me though.

Hi,

I have moved from ext4 to btrfs when beta was arrived with it
... on my system I don't see any difference at usual works ... (not (unreal) benchmark) ... NAS have other bottleneck it lot of usage ...
... I have large video and media libraries and large DVD (Linux/Windows ISO) library

I move to btrfs for the future, now the first element (even btrfs access to or search a file is faster) is for snapshot (largely better than LVM snapshot) but also I bet on the arrival of all functionalities added by btrfs ... defragmentation(fragmentation exist in Linux but less visible before disk will be filled up to some % , defragmentation is important, for ex., for backup and to reduce on sequential access delay to move disk heads ), resize (+/-), expand, mirroring at F.S. level nor disk level, etc. etc.

Philippe.
NB just my opinion :roll: :mrgreen: , please choice based on your own criteria and experience ...
