The suggestion was correctly threaded with your original mail here.

It should also be spot on.  ext4 is an extension of ext3 which is an
extension of ext2 (which is an extension of ext).  tune2fs is the
ext2/3/4 file system tuning program.  What exactly are you looking to do
to fix your performance problem?  Do you know what is causing the
performance problem?
