I am streaming high-resolution images to be compressed through
hardware and need to separate the data from the meta data for
compression purposes. XFS gave that for free if I used a realtime
I originally started on kernel 2.6.27 (CentOS 5.5) which had no issues
with the RT subvolume and direct writes. I was then moved to kernel
2.6.32 (SUSE 11) which does have the issue.
I appreciate your willingness to help. Are there any alternatives or
suggestions for splitting the data and meta data? Any direction you
