Hi David -
A good overview document of XFS features is chapter 9(?) of the
"Advanced Filesystem Implementer's Guide" that Daniel Robbins
did for IBM's DeveloperWorks web site. For lower-level technical
info, there are XFS design papers on our website, but those are fairly
dated, and have no Linux-specific info. Unfortunately, that's probably
the best info in writing for now.
I always thought that a document that showed basic filesystem layout,
superblock structure, allocation group header info, etc and tied it
to the structures in the code would be nice. Most of that information
is in the design papers mentioned above, but it could be tied together,
updated, and tidied up.
