Use xfs_fsr to keep your XFS filesystem optimal

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 61.68.237.226] on July 20, 2008 03:05 PM
Not wanting to troll or anything but.....
I formatted a 500GB maxtor external drive with XFS, used for mythtv and backup duties
It was fast for mythtv thats for sure, but after a power faliure during the night i noticed that some backup directorys had vanished ( not good ). The volume continued to mount correctly and record Judge Judy... ( ok it was a test :-) ). I ran the fskckeck...or something and was told superblock missing ... i tried to repair it ( cant remember the command ) but it was in vain, i lost my backups. I am now testing JFS on multiple machines from 733mhz, 20GB machines to Duel core 640GB machines.. and i like it a lot.
