I'm including the XFS filesystem into my Linux kernel. The
be running a video application and hence handle huuuuugggge files and I
need a very high transfer rate. (I can hear you asking, Why else one
would use XFS.)
I understand that currently XFS on Linux supports a max. block
4KB and extent size upto 1GB.
I'd like to know what is the optimal block size and extent size
combination with which I can get the highest transfer rate. Any answers
and leads to other sources of answers will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time and efforts.
