How to optimize your FS?

It turns out that we have to optimize our FS before benchmarking. I have read some articles and maillist archives so I got some impression:

  1. Give correct parameters to newfs(1)
    avgfilesize, filesperdir, will control DIRPERF hashing.

  2. Turn on noatime mounts.

  3. etc.

Just make a note.
