We are using BTRFS on a SLES 11 SP2 IBM SERVER (SORRY ORACLE RE THE OS AND HARDWARE!)
I chose Butter for this task based on the idea that it was the fastest file system available, but I am beginning to see that it is not as simple as this. Butter seems to have features more geared towards the copy on write, and snapshotting functions.btrfs is hardly the fastest filesystem available. It's designed for resilience and functionality, not performance.
Can anyone comment on whether they think Butter is a good option for Lotus Domino Email Server. Please be brutally honest with me. I am easily swayed and the Avi Miller You Tube video, got me right into the BTRFS idea, but I suspect that this is not well not suited to task as we do not really need the journalling and snapshot stuff as Domino itself takes care of this at the application level.You'll probably be better off with XFS. However, I haven't worked with Domino for years, so this is just an assumption. Also, I have no idea what kernel version SUSE is running these days or the state of btrfs in that kernel version. You'd be better off checking in the SUSE forum or the btrfs-devel mailing list.
