I have a normal hardware, I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 anew. But something's completely wrong. PHPunit tests are REALLY slow.
I have no idea what's wrong. With ext3 all was normal.
It looks like setting barrier=0 as a mount option will help with performance.
See MySQL bug #46959.
Test in a Staging environment first!
Hope this helps.
