I am extremely happy with XFS for my /home partition, where I do have huge files (DVD Isos for my home videos). I did have lots of trouble using it as the root directory (boot loader issues, etc), so now I am sticking to ext3 for "/". And yes, I do run this utility (fsr) frequently.
What I wonder is what kind of performance gain you can get. I just run it 'cause there is no harm. Has anyone heard of benchmarks of disk performance before/after xfs_fsr? (I know this would be entirely case-specific, but it'd be nice to see some examples)
