OK. It seems XFS is worth a try though it is alien to me. Obtained a cvs
checkout of 2.4-xfs kernel from sgi site. I will try XFS and update ILUGC
about the server's status and performance.
Here is a quick review of my status:
SCSI controller: Adaptec 39160 160MBPS 32bit pci card.
HDD: U320 Seagate 36G 2 Nos. 10K rpm
Proc: P4 2.0, 512K cache single processor.
Network: RTL8101L as in Motherboard manual, but linux identifies this as
eepro100 and runs just fine.
OS: Debian Woody r1 with all security updates.
Filesystem: 30G XFS and 36G XFS.
Approx type of contents on the filesystem: mail folders, java sources, jpg,
mp3 and all other usual crap from a network user. quota is 500M/user
I will compile either the linux-2.4-xfs(2.4.25-pre8) sgi CVS source, or try
patching the 2.4.21 source from kernel.org.
Hope I dont run into any problem later when the server is up and running with
