Benchmarking BLOB vs Filesystem for image storage

Well, I know that filesystem is going to be faster for this one, but I want to know by how much. So, I’ve set myself the talks of measuring it, when I get any spare time, of course :)

phpMyScaffold can store blobs for web site images, and I wonder how far I can take the ‘scaffolding’ nature of PMA-based sites into a low-traffic production environment.

Stay tuned for the results, or if you have any comments, suggestions for the test!

UPDATE: Filesystem is about 10x faster than BLOB! I dont have time right now to write up the method and results… hopefully soon :)
