"Any benchmark is going to be a benchmark of the OS as much as it is going to be a benchmark of the filesystem. It's pretty hard to separate the two. ZFS is best tested on Open Solaris. UFS is best tested on FreeBSD, EXT3 is best tested on Linux, and HAMMER of course is best tested on DragonFly."
"As of now there are no known bugs, though I'm sure that will change as more DragonFly users start using the filesystem :-)"
"I wasn't even trying to invent a new protocol or anything, I was simply fixing the haphazard mathematical algorithms the clearly non-mathematically-oriented programmers built into those crufty clients."
"I should also add that there's a ton of work that needs to be done in the kernel for BGL removal in general, particularly the I/O paths (the network path being only part of the larger picture). There's plenty of thesis material there, particularly because our cpu-localization approach is very different from the tact that other OS's have taken."
"I will do as much work on HAMMER as I can prior to release but it will definitely be in an early-alpha state as of the release."
