A New Implementation of a Log-structured File System for Linux

Official package sites : http://nilfs.sourceforge.net/ ·

NILFS is a new implementation of a log-structured file system for the Linux 2.6 operating system. Conventional features of a log-structured file systems (LFS) are high write performance and fast recovery time. In addition, LFS prevents data write operations from overwriting the disk blocks, thereby minimizing the damage to file data and system consistency on hardware failure. Furthermore, LFS writes data and meta-data in the correct order which helps ensuring consistency in the entire file system. LFS can instantaneously create file system snapshots and check the file system speedy. We implemented ``NILFS'' using modern technology: For example, the file and inode blocks are managed by a B-tree structure, internal data are processed in 64 bit wide word size. The B-tree structure enables ``NILFS'' to create and store huge files.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
