XFS is the best for long concurrent writes...so if you are not too
concerned about losing data in a crash (or get battery power backup for
your 3ware cards and the more cache for your card you have the better)
but do you also expect a lot of reading while during your writes? Then
jfs might be better.
You can also use the framework at
http://untroubled.org/benchmarking/2004-04/fsbench.tar.gz and customize
it for your own testing.
Main site for that is http://untroubled.org/benchmarking/2004-04/
