Re: ext3 vs reiserfs 3.6

Since I changed from reiserfs 3.6 to ext3 with debian etch amd64, the system

computation has now ended to full convergence.  That was the most stressing
action of memory I could conceive.

Would you be able to put together and make available a simple script with
such a stress test for other people to try? Especially if you know that it
consistently crashes your previous setup. I, for one, am curious, since I
have 7 rock stable amd64 machines happily crunching numbers with (other)
quantum chemistry applications and using reiserfs. None of them is SMP
