Slow slab day

Slow day today. Haven't done much so far except from extracting some web site statistics and trying to get a better understanding about file system cache vs. application cache in Linux. Especially when using non-caching/buffering raw devices. Been studying the kernel slab when using a raw vs. non-raw volume.
First impression is that file systems suck! :)

Favorite Linux command of the day: slabtop
