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.

A low budget RAID controller is obviously not meant to be run in a high performance server environment, but the Workstation test does a very good job of mimicking multitasking environments.

 

Here we see little gains by using the RocketRAID 2310 with multiple drives outside of RAID 0.

 

RAID 5 does show a nice performance increase over a single drive in the web and file server tests where the drives read data almost exclusively.
