I will be bench marking and testing different use cases for new emerging enterprise storage platforms. This post outlines the standardized benchmark testing that will be used.
Benchmark tool: Intel’s IOMeter version 2006.07.27
- Max disk size: 2,048,000 (8 GB iobw.tst file is generated at the root of the tested drive)
- Starting disk sector: 0
- # of Outstanding I/Os: 32 (important)
- IO profile: 32k; 50% read; (50% write)
- Run time: 10 minutes
