I've been playing with IOZone ( http://www.iozone.org/ ) and it helps in 
tuning systems, beside comparing filesystems and hardware. Certain 
kernel and FS settings and raid layouts have much more impact than the 
type of FS. Also been playing with Solaris 9 x86 UFS logging, software 
mirroring and it beats hardware mirroring (on the same mobo), 
interestingly enough. Much greater diff than UFS (sol 9)  vs XFS (linux) 
on the same box.
