i'm a new suscriber of this mailing-list, hoping i'll be able to help u.
But before i've a question.
I've to mount a huge file server using Samba.
We bought a new server, using raid 5 technology.
My question is, now i've to install on it my favorite operating system :)
and i ask me which filesystem type i've to use to increase Samba performances on it, some people said me "xfs", others "ext3"...
Which one do u recommend me and why ?
hoping i've been clear with my question.
