XFS or JFS?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2008
I need some clarification here. Which one is easier to recover from, XFS or JFS?
I'm rebuilding my mythtv box, the filesystem is going to be used for my recorded TV partition. Ext3 is out, last time I used ext3 it was unable to handle the large files well.
So I just want people's opinion on the two. I've read various things from Googling, but I'm still not sure of the benefit of one over the other.
What to choose: JFS, XFS or ext3 ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 23, 2006
I will format my two 200GB SATA drives that I have for storage from NTFS to something new.
These disks are for storage only and there will be 700+MB files and smaller like 4+MB files meaning (mp3 and some movies, all legally acquired )
So I was wondering what filesystem should I choose.
The first thought was for ext3 but after doing some search on the net I believe that JFS or XFS are better options.
Has anyone tried any of those two filesystems: XFS, JFS ?
I will be using kernel 2.6.x and x86_64 and x86.
Any opinions/recomendations/suggestions are welcome
xfs or ext4 etc.?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2012
i remarked ext4, after a power failure, often needs a manual fsck, sometimes even resulting in data loss. Is XFS or other filesystems any better? Can I do fsck with xfs from the rescue boot etc.?
Major problems: High Iowait. Change filesystem from etx4 to xfs/ext3/jfs?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 15, 2010
been running Myhtv for five years without major problems, but now after I upgraded my system to HD capaple and doing an clean Myhtbuntu 9.10 install I´m having major problems which I cannot seem to be able to solve.
The problem is periodical overall system slugginesh most likely caused by High IOWait. What causes the high IOWait I have no idea but I suspect it might be the filesystem, EXT4.
Processor: Core Duo 2.8 GHz
MoBo: Asus P5Q-E

My Live TV and recordings are SD from two DVB-C cards, HD based material from videos.
Maybe 50 % of the time the system works ok, but sometimes (mainly in the evenings?) the system performance is unbearable: perodically the playback stops for 5-15 sec (sometimes even goes back to main menu), plays fine for few secs and stops again. During this the IOWait hits 99 %, IOtop shows no disc act
trouble installing slackware 10 in XFS and JFS filesystems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 15, 2004
I type the command "mkfs.jfs -c /dev/hda1" or "mkfs.xfs /dev/hda1" and it makes the filesystem, then I goto the setup menu, I select the partition, it asks me if I want to format it, check for bad blocks, or do nothing, i choose the last option since the setup menu does not format the filesystem in JFS and XFS, then when im about to install the system I get a bunch of error messages telling me that it cannot copy the files to the hdd....
Why would changing the filesystem type from XFS to JFS increase mmap file write performance?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 23, 2011
I have been playing around with different filesystems and comparing the performance of the various filesystems when using mmap.
I am suprised that changing to JFS doubled the write performance straight off.
I thought writes were done to the page cache and so when a write is done the app keeps moving on quickly? is it actually a synchronous operation under linux?
A slight increase in read performance, but not as significant.
Filesystem for External Drive JFS or XFS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 17, 2009
I have put a 500GB SATA drive inside a USB enclosure. I plan to use it as a media store to hold movies, music, etc. and maybe, backups too.
A point to note is that while it will not hurt if I lose the media files due to file system corruption (the home folder is more valuable), hey, no one wants to lose their collection (backup is simply not feasible, given the size). So I would still like filesystem damages to be minimal, in case of accidents like power failures and hard restarts.
I have searched around on Google and these forums and here are my thoughts/questions:
1. JFS - My first preference. Should I be worried by IBM's end of support and fading user community? - http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-253483.html Is this the only minus point for this excellent filesystem?
2. XFS - Yes, the power situation is not the best there is at my place, and I have to worry about hard restarts, sometimes caused by faulty hardware and peripherals.
3. ext4 - The best of JFS/
problem with login to Ubuntu with ReiserFS or XFS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 5, 2006
i had previously installed Ubuntu Dapper on my computer with
ext3 as root and home, both on different partition.
i read many good things about reiserfs so i rebooted into my alternate installation CD (text mode) and created reiserfs for root and home. Root of 4.5 GB and home 1 GB. Every thing went fine while installation. When the installation was complete system rebooted and and when all the loading process was completed a console screen appears and asked for user ID and password. My GUI dosent start automatically. i had provided user id and password and typed "startx" command at the console. Then the message appeared as " XSession file mission in /home .
i had then again installed ubuntu on ext3 partition worked fine, and without any error i logged in successfully.
why this happened? pls help me i want to install ubuntu on ReiserFS.
This is my first forum ever sorry for my english and other grammatical mistakes.
Repair a bad, missing, or corrupt XFS superblock on Buffalo LSW1.0TGL/R1?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2012
How do I repair a bad, missing, or corrupt XFS superblock on Buffalo LS-W1.0TGL/R1 RAID0?
I am using Ubuntu for the recovery processes, and yes, I have also posted this to the relevant Buffalo forums. I am very optimistic that the Ubuntu forum will yield solid results!
[The device is not visible over the network, and there is not a serial port to ssh into, even if Buffalo allowed it, which I doubt they would. "tftp only" on other devices that had the serial port. The device runs, apparently normal, but simply does nothing at all useful. NasiNav cant see it even with a direct, known-good ethernet cable.]
Backstory: This article practically reiterates the entire problem we are dealing with. the XFS part is particularly enjoyable.
A User has lost access to data stored on a NAS device drive Buffalo LS-W1.0TGL/R1. THe unit has a default filessystem setup, using the entire available drive space for storage
HOWTO: Read and write Linuxlike partitions (ext, xfs, jfs ...) under Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2007
Hi All Ubuntu Fan!
Thats my first post here, what is more my English isn't very good yet, so please be patient and supportive. Thanks.
I have a solution for the problem of filesystems-opsystems dilemma. I have never read any solution like that yet, that I decided to share with the Community.
Maybe that solution a bit complex and resource waster, but it works.
First, I consider my idea for Masters, who can work without the full guide.
The idea: Under Windows XP install a VMware workstation, make a new Ubuntu virtual machine with NAT networking, install Ubuntu onto the virtual machine, stop it, go to the virtual machine's settings, connect your HDDs which contains Linux-like partitions and You want to use them to Your virtual machine. Then boot it up, locate the drives, than put them into the fstab. After that setup a SAMBA server, and share your drives. Now you can discover your drives via windows networks.
Now in details:
