IOMETER: File Server Test
To test each drive we ran 6 test runs per device (1,4,8,16,32 queue depth) each test having 5 parts, each part lasting 10 min w/ an additional 20 second ramp up. The 6 subparts were set to run 75% random, 75% read 25% write; testing 512b, 4k,8k,16k,32k,64k size chunks of data. When each test is finished IOMeter spits out a report, in that reports each of the 6 subtests are given a score in I/Os per second. We then average these results and this average score for that particular queue depth is heavily weighted for file server usage.
