I am going to use XFS on a Arch Linux box and I am looking for ways to
maximize XFS performance. According to an article I have read [1],
best XFS performance was reached with a file system formatted with a
64MB log and mounted with 8 log buffers and atime disabled. But I am
curious, from the prespective of the XFS experts of this list, if this
is still good advice and if it is still relevant, as this article was
published in 2003.

Also, I have seen a few people recommend turning off the internal
buffers of hard drives (via hdparm) when using a file system like XFS.
Good advice?

Thank you!
