Why would you want to move the Postgres data to a non-journaled filesystem? That sounds like a bad idea to me. Moving the Postgres write-ahead log to a non-journaled filesystem, yeah that would make sense. Don, I think that's what you recommended yourself way back when. Has something changed since then?

I went perusing the Net for PostgreSQL file system recommendations on Linux, and I found that the SGI contributed XFS and IBM contributed JFS look like the top choices out of the journaling file systems. XFS is known for it's good support for large files, and some PostgreSQL benchmarks have JFS performing better than ext2. It is still unclear to me if there is a "best" FS for PostgreSQL.
