Log-structured file system for Linux 2.6


The goal of this project is to implement a log-structured file system for Linux 2.6 kernel, based on previous works described in related papers with features including:

Unlike the previous LFS implementations, we try to fit in well in the unified page and buffer cache of the new 2.6 Linux kernels.

Current state

The first version was released in September 2006. At the moment, we evaluate performance, analyze problems and general file system behavior and present the results to the Linux community and beyond. We hope to resume further development soon, ideally with contribution from other members of the community.
