Passmark Advanced Multi-User Tests

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 6.1

Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

 

 

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

 

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

Even though no one would ever run a RAID 0 array for these enterprise tasks, it is always fun to still run the numbers and see how a drive performs. The Corsair Performance 3 is designed for client (desktop) tasks, but as you can see they are not too shabby at enterprise loads either.
