If there were a benchmark JFS would only be there for comparison. Nobody expects it to perform like reiserfs or XFS.

I'd like to see Reiser3, Reiser4, XFS and ext3 performance compared with NTFS, UFS/ZFS and BSD's filesystem.

It would also be nice to flex the linux device mapper by comparing compression and encryption as well.

I imagine NTFS might be able to outperform ext3 without compression or encryption, but Linux would pull ahead when its fully loaded.. or at least that's what I might expect to see in such a comparison.

JFS isn't too far off, and nobody expects any of the Linux filesystems to perform like ext2. JFS2 is really neat, but unfortunately it's not likely to be open sourced anytime soon.

"I'd like to see Reiser3, Reiser4, XFS and ext3 performance compared with NTFS, UFS/ZFS and BSD's filesystem."

Yeah, I would, too, but any benchmark would be influenced by the variance in I/O subsystems as well as by the variance in filesystem performance.

"I imagine NTFS might be able to outperform ext3 without compression or encryption, but Linux would pull ahead when its fully loaded.. or at least that's what I might expect to see in such a comparison."

I wouldn't expect NTFS on Windows XP to outperform ext3 on Linux 2.6. The Windows I/O scheduler pales in comparison to CFQ or AS.
