Bonnie++ Results for XFS on Dell E4200 SSD

I’ve been playing with my new work laptop, a Dell E4200 (which I chose as I wanted something light) and thought I’d run Bonnie++ on my XFS /home partition on the SSD (a “SAMSUNG SSD Thin uSATA 128GB M” according to dmesg) to see how it compares to spinning disk. Here’s the results with Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10):

So comparing with some old results on my home desktop system seems to show that the block I/O numbers are better, but the file manipulation stuff is much worse! Once I can get btrfs on here I’ll have to try again. 😉
