while I'm sure that most of the FreeBSD admins are aware of "silly"
benchmarks where Linux I/O seems to dwarf FreeBSD, do you have some
pointers regarding your statement that FreeBSD triumphs for real-world
I/O loads? Can this be simulated using iozone, bonnie, etc? More
importantly, is there a way to do this file system independently?
