Hi Team,
Just want to understand can we use "ext4" filetype in scylladb prod environment instead xfs. Does it make any performance difference? If yes, please share those differences and drawbacks if we go with ext4.

We exclusively tests with XFS, so if there are problems with ext4, you'll be the first to uncover them.

I believe that in terms of correctness ext4 will be a close match for XFS if you use a modern kernel, but I've done nothing to confirm it.
