Benchmarks The choice of filesystems on Linux is vast, but most people will stick with their respective distributions' default choices, which will most likely be ext3, but you're free to use ReiserFS, XFS, or something else completely if you so desire. Things are about to change though, with btrfs just around the corner. To bridge the gap between now and btfrs, ext3 has been updated to ext4, which adds some interesting features like extents, which are already in use in most other popular file systems. Phoronix decided it was time to do some performance checking on ext4.

"Filesystem performance tweaking with XFS on Linux"
http://everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1479435

The article has been around for some time but the infromation contained within is quite valid. The author begins with a default XFS setup showing marginal performance and then applies various tweaks by experimenting with differnt values for settings finally resulting in drastic performance improvements.
