I use reiserfs for almost everything these days. Notable exceptions:
o / <-- It can be done; I just haven't, yet.
o qmail's queue directory <-- Again, it can be done. I use an ext2
fs mounted sync
To be honest, the only reason I use it is that I can do online
resizing, something I've never managed to get working happily
with ext2. That no fscking is involved is a small bonus. If
I weren't using lvm, I probably wouldn't bother with reiserfs,
even for large partitions. Mind you, I can't imagine a box
Reiserfs is in production here on lots of *x86* servers and
desktops. I have no idea what it's like on alpha boxes.
Also, is a 30GB ext2 filesystem still really slow at fscking even
with 4kB blocks and sparse superblocks and a low inode count? And
if you mount it check=none does the mount time become acceptable?
