Performance of FUSEX client

(Armin) #1

Dear all

I made some tests for a web service using the FUSEX client mount instead of the normal FUSE client. It however looks like that it’s noticeably less performant than the FUSE for reading files. File sizes are 10-100 MB. The response times of requests are roughly at least 5 times higher than for same request types to a server with FUSE client mounts. Did anybody make similar observations? Are there special parameters that could be tried to improve reading speed of FUSEX?

Hi Armin,
the last release has the read-ahead mechanism broken, it does small reads at the moment defined by your network latency. The next tag will be good!
