Hi all,

I was wondering whether it would be better to use EXT4 or XFS for a 
directory storage in Proxmox for VM Image storage. Any hints about what 
use-cases are better for each fs?

I have done some tests (will send them today or tomorrow to the list) 
and so far pveperf seems to report better buffered reads with EXT4 but 
better fsyncs/sec with XFS.
