comment How to set up ZFS with ZIL and L2ARC SSD?
How do I know? uname -a. ZFS is a Solaris filesystem and was ported to BSD later. It is not officially supported on Linux and there are technical and legal issues with ZFS on linux. Switch to Solaris/OpenIndiana or FreeBSD if you want to use ZFS or use bcache on Linux. Also read this and this.

comment Storing thousands of files in one directory
XFS seems to be great for big files but I would not recommend it for many small files. I wrote a benchmark using 300K small files.

comment How to improve IO when there is a lot of random read and write?
@JimThio dirty_expire_centisecs is not the only value you have to tweak. dirty_async_ratio controls how much of your ram will be used for writecache, until disk io starts. Also keep your Filesystem settings like in mind. What mount options are you using?

comment btrfs performance
@StephaneChazelas "And after a sync data is guaranteed to be committed to disk." Actually sync is just a hint to the OS and not a garantee.

comment Why does a desktop launcher does not start my app, while command line does?
Maybe you want to read this article about how .desktop files work. If everything is set up correctly it should work.

comment Create swap partition after install
@iLinux85 "swap file slow in performance" that is not true. As long as the swap file is not fragmented there shouldn't be any noticeable performance loss when using a swap file. A swap partition however makes sense in case you have a dedicated hard drive for swap.

comment Why doesn't cp have a progress bar like wget?
@dmckee Then why can dd give progress statements? dd goes back to 1966 (OS/360). Unix tools can be verbose if the user wants them to be verbose, but unfortunately you can't say how verbose cp shall be (there is only one additional verbosity level: -v).
