I have spent quite a bit of effort over the past few months on
benchmarking the performance of UFS filesystems on FreeBSD 4.x, 5.x
and 6.x, with UP and SMP hardware. The results are quite interesting
and reveal both the enormous progress made in SMP performance and
scalability with the release of FreeBSD 6.0, and a remaining
performance limitation which should direct future work. I am planning
to write up these observations, and BSDCan should be a good venue for
presenting the results.
Depending on my time and hardware availability, I may also be able to
extend the analysis to cover other BSD versions.
