"there are more consumer NAS devices running XFS in the world than there are servers running XFS"
BTW, can you point me to the reasons for chosing XFS in such an environment? The kernel module for XFS is huge. 1.7MB on the SL 6.1 machine in front of me. By "consumer" are you referring to the sub-$200 stuff that can be bought at, say, BEST BUY? I would be very interested in the rationale. I have a few Buffalo router/NAS devices. 32MB flash/64MB ram. USB 2.0. What would you say the advantages of running XFS rather than EXT4 might be on this device?
