Haven't tried Squid in comination with Reiser FS, only the UFS standard. As
it is becoming really sloooooooooooow lately, I will reinstall with ReiserFS
this weekend. Tell you guys on Monday if it helps. Most likely, my users
will tell mne before I can test anything anyway. But that's why we have
users: to stress test our networks.. ;-)

Yeah, just read an interesting article about it... it would seem it would
help to make Squid really hum.

Has anyone on the list ran Squid with and without ReiserFS and noticed any
magnitude of difference?
