Explore choices and trade-offs for filesystem types for Linux, such as ext4, xfs, and Btrfs.
- [Instructor] Filesystem types differ … in a number of dimensions. … Reliability, unfortunately, is one of the dimensions. … Some filesystems are, frankly, more debugged than others, … and that's one of the most important things … to make sure it doesn't have a big bug. … I know folks, for example, though … that build their software in a filesystem … that's not particularly reliable, but it's fast. … Because you check out the software and then you build it, … and if you lose data, well, you just lost that build. … You're not losing your software … because it's still in Git or whatever. … So there are situations … where if your filesystem gets corrupted … and you lose everything, it's not a big deal … because it was just temporary. … Filesystems can differ or be optimized … for the size of files. … So if you have a lot of little files, … maybe you want one kind of filesystem. … If you have a lot of large files, … maybe you want a different kind of filesystem. … They can differ in how well they do …
