Hi Aldo,

is not ext4 too slow?
What mount switches do you use?
We had to switch back to ext3, because ext4 was too slow (barrier switch and db forced write were on).

I'm running Firebird on Linux since many years, with the following environment:

1. Ubuntu 14.04 ( I've also run it on Debian 6.0 )
2. ext4
3. Journaling
4. Firebird 2.5.2

Firebird ver 64 bits
Windows Server 2012R2

I am planning to change the operating system that hosts our ERP's Firebird Databases from Windows Server 2012R2 to Linux and I have some questions about it:

1. Which Linux distribution do you recommend? I have experience using Centos.
2. Which Linux file system do you recommend? (ext3 ext4, etc)
3. Do you recommend using a journaling file system?
4. One of the requirements is that the Firebird has to be but as of today the current version is is there a repository of past firebird versions?

Thanks in advance for your help
