If there are AG locks, but multiple files can write in the same AG, how "AG
lock" is interpreted by XFS then? What does it really do?
For pre-allocation and delayed allocation, do they belong to the feature set
of XFS? Or are they application dependant?
I am trying to compare filesystems, especially xfs vs jfs. I found that
jfs's per AG locking would only allow one file to be written per AG, which
helps a lot to prevent fragmentation (according to experiment results).
There're no pre-allocation and delayed allocation in JFS though. Comparing
the experiment results, XFS is doing a good job, giving 6-10 fragments
(compare to majority of single fragment in JFS...). So answers of the above
questions with numbers would help a lot. Thanks!
