In the past, some customers ever complained that OCFS2 file system performance went down when listing a big directory (e.g. include 400k files). According to my preliminary investigation, this performance problem is related to file system block allocation algorithm. Then, I want to look at the current mainstream file systems (e.g. EXT4, XFS, etc) block allocation algorithms in this hack week, compare and analysis these algorithms advantages/disadvantages.
