[ceph-users] Bluestore performance 50% of filestore

How big were the writes in the windows test and how much concurrency was 
there?

Historically bluestore does pretty well for us with small random writes 
so your write results surprise me a bit.  I suspect it's the low queue 
depth.  Sometimes bluestore does worse with reads, especially if 
readahead isn't enabled on the client.

Given the small file size, I'd expect that you might be getting better journal coalescing in filestore.
