comment how to do filesystem testing?
While I understand that to make tests comparable you want the same starting point (empty caches/buffers), it begs the question how representative is that of the real world scenarios? In the real world do you clean caches before every batch of work, or are you trying to leverage all the caching, buffering, preloading and whatever else you can conjure up? Filesystem testing is an interesting conundrum, because the two main principles of testing are at odds--repeatability and representation of real world conditions are orthogonal. So you want to run two set of tests: synthetic, and real world.
