Ext3 v XFS Read/Write Patterns

See the graph below for an insight into the read/write request patterns of XFS/Ext3 during a 'bonnie' run.

On the X-axis is the number of sectors requested from the disk (for either a read or a write) and on the Y-axis is the number of times this many sectors was requested during the bonnie run (note the Y axis is logarithmic).

This data was taken by tracing the Userspace IDE driver under Linux.
