Btrfs is a new copy on write (CoW) filesystem for Linux aimed at implementing advanced features while focusing on fault tolerance, repair and easy administration. Jointly developed at Oracle, Red Hat, Fujitsu, Intel, SUSE, STRATO and many others, Btrfs is licensed under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.

The Re-issue, should technically only focus on the exclusive edition bags that Karl Lagerfield released in 2005 (to commemorate the 50th anniversary in the classic  [http://www.mkmk.us michael kors outlet] 2.55), however all classic style bags  [http://www.headphonesbybeats.com beats by dre] currently are often known as reissues.

Yet, every celebrity owns them. They rarely ever embark on sale, plus the supply is not as available considering that it is at bygone times. Maybe the need for the Euro is responsible for this phenomenon to happen. There are plenty of reasons, similarly; it's got original and inventive shape which is certainly seldom affecting handbags brand.

Linux has a wealth of filesystems from which to choose, but we are facing a number of challenges with scaling to the large storage subsystems that are becoming common in today's data centers. Filesystems need to scale in their ability to address and manage large storage, and also in their ability to detect, repair and tolerate errors in the data stored on disk.
  
There is no need that you go especially for a Chanel showroom, without ought to alter your schedules depending on the store timings. Progressively more people now rely only on shopping thus to their needs, in so doing, extraordinary considering that obvious potential around the medium to develop. There can be many of the Chanel handbags inside the Chanel retail outlet, filled with detailed descriptions and  pictures within the bags.

Revision as of 10:42, 28 December 2012

Btrfs is a new copy on write (CoW) filesystem for Linux aimed at implementing advanced features while focusing on fault tolerance, repair and easy administration. Jointly developed at Oracle, Red Hat, Fujitsu, Intel, SUSE, STRATO and many others, Btrfs is licensed under the GPL and open for contribution from anyone.

Btrfs is under heavy development, but every effort is being made to keep the filesystem stable and fast. Because of the speed of development, you should run the latest kernel you can (either the latest release kernel from kernel.org, or the latest -rc kernel. Please email the Btrfs mailing list if you have any problems or questions while using Btrfs.

Features

Linux has a wealth of filesystems from which to choose, but we are facing a number of challenges with scaling to the large storage subsystems that are becoming common in today's data centers. Filesystems need to scale in their ability to address and manage large storage, and also in their ability to detect, repair and tolerate errors in the data stored on disk.

The main Btrfs features available at the moment include:

  • Extent based file storage
  • 2^64 byte == 16 EiB maximum file size
  • Space-efficient packing of small files
  • Space-efficient indexed directories
  • Dynamic inode allocation
  • Writable snapshots, read-only snapshots
  • Subvolumes (separate internal filesystem roots)
  • Checksums on data and metadata (crc32c)
  • Compression (zlib and LZO)
  • Integrated multiple device support
    • File Striping, File Mirroring, and File Striping+Mirroring implementations
  • SSD (Flash storage) awareness (TRIM/Discard for reporting free blocks for reuse) and optimizations (e.g. avoiding unnecessary seek optimizations, sending writes in clusters, even if they are from unrelated files. This results in larger write operations and faster write throughput)
  • Efficient incremental backup
  • Background scrub process for finding and fixing errors on files with redundant copies
  • Online filesystem defragmentation
  • Offline filesystem check
  • Conversion of existing ext3/4 file systems
  • Seed devices. Create a (readonly) filesystem that acts as a template to seed other Btrfs filesystems. The original filesystem and devices are included as a readonly starting point for the new filesystem. Using copy on write, all modifications are stored on different devices; the original is unchanged.
  • Subvolume-aware quota support
  • Send/receive of subvolume changes
    • Efficient incremental filesystem mirroring

Additional features in development, or planned, include:

  • Very fast offline filesystem check
  • File Striping with Single and Dual Parity
  • Object-level mirroring and striping
  • Alternative checksum algorithms
  • Online filesystem check
  • Other compression methods (snappy, lz4)
  • Hot data tracking and moving to faster devices (currently being pushed as a generic feature available through VFS)


Linux in 3.7 (Dec 2012)

  • fsync speedups
  • removed limitation of number of hardlinks in a single directory
  • file hole punching (LWN article)
  • per-file NOCOW
  • fixes to send/receive

Enterprise btrfs support (Feb 2012)
