Extra Rigor In Scientific Methodology Can Consume Years Of Your Life, And How The Result Can Be So Very Worthwhile

Traditional filesystems handle small files very poorly, and traditional databases handle large files poorly. The Reiser4 Filesystem Ways In Which Extra Rigor In Scientific Methodology Can Consume Years Of Your Life, And How The Result Can Be So Very Worthwhile About the talk: If you want a filesystem to handle names that are semi-structured data queries, then you need to have a storage layer that can handle both large and small files. Future work will be to add semi-structured data queries into the filesystem. The Resierfs file system is based on balanced tree algorithms rather than block allocation. Reiser4 fixes the performance issues with traditional balanced tree algorithms that made them perform poorly for filesystem usage patterns, and then implements a filesystem on top of that. His senior thesis discussed differences in the philosophy of computer science and the physical sciences as illustrated by name space (file system) design issues. The result is a filesystem with roughly twice the performance of other Linux filesystems. Hans is primary architect, project manager, and one of the programmers for the file system. ().
