Hi, here is a review of all the journaling filesystems I did a while ago.

I believe XFS is more mature than JFS in Linux. This is just my opinion however and from reading LKML and other related mailing lists.

I'm working in a quite large computing center as Systems Designer for UNIX
and UNIX-like Systems. We largely use IBMs AIX and a bit of Sun's Solaris.

Now we want to bring GNU/Linux broadly to our datacenter and application
servers. We chose "SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8" for including IBM JFS
and SGI XFS support.
On AIX, LVM is everywhere and the Filesystems can be increased (and now
shrinked) in size when mounted. The Filesystem Increasement therefore is
an important feature for us on Linux.

But we don't know which one of XFS and JFS to take. Does one of them have
advantages that makes it better for servers?
I mean, I know that JFS for Linux was the base for JFS2 for AIX, but as I
read the JFS for Linux mailinglist I don't think, this is a feature that
could help us.

Anyway, thank you very much for help in advance
