• \[Info\] Btrfs Goodies


    Recently I had boot speed regression from 3.2 sec to 5.2 sec I tried to fstrim -v /, clean journal then decided to try btrfs commands.
    Here’s what I did ( if your home is on a separate drive like mine you could change it to /home )
    Taken from ARCH Wiki [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Btrfs][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Btrfs][1]

    Defragmentation (Don’t do it on SSD! )
    sudo btrfs filesystem defragment /

    Scrub (Not sure if you can use it on SSD)
    sudo btrfs scrub start /
    sudo btrfs scrub status /

    Balance (Not sure if you can use it on SSD)
    sudo btrfs filesystem balance start /
    sudo btrfs filesystem balance status /

    and then all back to normal 3.2 sec
    Hope it helps you too if your system becomes slow.
