Hope following ideas may help you. 1. Article is too long. You have a note before the introduction, then "introduction" and "Understanding journaling in FreeBSD". I appreciate brevity. The "introduction" and "Understanding journaling in FreeBSD" would be suffice. and edit them for brevity. The note before the introduction is good enough as an introduction, 2. Ideally have a table of contents. 3. Ideally prerequisites as a separate section. 4. A new section on "How to estimate journal size" 5. Split "Setting up journaling" to sub sections: - Data and journal in the same partition - Data and journal in the multiple partitions/disks 6. A new section on how to extend the size of the journal (if later find too small) 7.
