MySQL Filesystems Benchmark

I was recently looking for information on how MySQL peforms on different Journaling filesystems. Google didn't really help me on such statistics and since I had the machines available for testing. (August 2003)

But as always, remember what Benjamin Distraeli said "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." Now guess where benchmarks fit in ;)

What I provide in this document are the results of the sql-bench within 8 different configurations and their summary. Nothing more nothing less, you can do your own interpretation of these figures.

I hope that someone else also benefits from these tests
