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.

In our server tests we see that the Falcon is still a little off pace with the X25-M, but since the Falcon is designed to be a desktop drive we are not going to worry about that too much. What we did see is that the drive managed to outperform Intel's desktop drive by a large margin in the Workstation Pattern, the one most like what enthusiasts would run into on their own systems.
