Torrent description

Although many operating system textbooks offer highlevel
descriptions of file systems, few go into sufficient
detail for an implementor, and none go into details about
advanced topics such as journaling. I wrote this book to address that lack of
information. This book covers the details of file systems, from low-level to
high-level, as well as related topics such as the disk cache, the file system
interface to the kernel, and the user-level APIs that use the features of the
file system. Reading this book should give you a thorough understanding
of how a file system works in general, how the Be File System (BFS) works
in particular, and the issues involved in designing and implementing a file
The Be operating system (BeOS) uses BFS as its native file system. BFS is
a modern 64-bit journaled file system. BFS also supports extended file attributes
(name/value pairs) and can index the extended attributes, which allows
it to offer a query interface for locating files in addition to the normal namebased
hierarchical interface. The attribute, indexing, and query features of
BFS set it apart from other file systems and make it an interesting example
to discuss.
Throughout this book there are discussions of different approaches to solving
file system design problems and the benefits and drawbacks of different
techniques. These discussions are all based on the problems that arose when
implementing BFS. I hope that understanding the problems BFS faced and the
changes it underwent will help others avoid mistakes I made, or perhaps spur
them on to solve the problems in different or more innovative ways.
