Let me preface these remarks with a comment to set the tone.
This is not an attempt at starting a religous war a la
linux vs FreeBSD.
I suspect what I see is the result of poor or misguided configs on my
part but have no clue what things to look at.
Turn softupdates on.
As far as i know linux ext2fs is an async filesystem which is faster but
lacks any security over an power failure or other system crashes.
FreeBSD uses default no fs speedups, you can turn softupdates on an
mount the file systems async. This will speedup any disc access with a
multiple or so. But in case of an error/crash more difficult and loss of
data could be result of this.
There are some nice doc's about freebsd's filesystems and tunings.
Possibly also turn write caching on if it is off.
