For I hope obvious reasons, I'd love to see this tested on a Lenovo X1
Carbon Gen 8 with the default SSD options.
And, for benchmarks, I'm thinking more application benchmarks than a
benchmark of the compression itself. How much does compressed /usr affect
boot times for GNOME and KDE? What about startup time for LibreOffice,
Firefox, etc? Any impact on run-time usage?
Two workloads: install and update. It might seem like an update is
both read and write dependent, but the rpms are already compressed and
don't get compressed again. The differences, I expect, are mostly
write performance. And this suggests it's a wash. I'd say this setup
is fairly middle of the pack.
The space savings, however, isn't a wash.
