Is there anyone out there testing Kerio Connect on an ext4 filesystem yet? We're fed up with the Mac platform and hfs+ and are moving to CentOS but have to make a decision on a filesystem on the new server.

I was just curious if we should stick with ext3, since it's about to be replaced by ext4 in even the conservative linux distributions like RHEL.

I'm not a linux file system guru, but I'm under the impression that for a larger disk volume, esp one with many files such as you will find with Kerio, XFS is the preferred choice..

XFS is a great filesystem but I've usually considered it the choice for very large volumes (>8TB). We'll be at about 2TB max for this system. Are linux admins here using XFS for their Kerio installs? ext3 seems the tried-and-true fs for this situation. I was just curious if Kerio has been testing out performance on ext4.

Looking for a better way to configure our Kerio server, I found this article from Novell giving a fairly complete explanation of various file systems. Cliff Notes: for a Kerio Mail store, RieserFS may be the best choice.

I was led there because for the last few days, we've been trying to track down a performance issue, but I'll post that in another thread.

Hi,

We're happily using ext4 with Kerio!

Ditto. ext4 in my experience is just a build on ext3 with journaling, which was a build on ext2 without journaling. We are having no problems with 350+ users. We transfer about 10 GB / day and have a mailstore of 500+GB.
