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.

We observed some interesting performance numbers in our server tests. After looking back at my old tests of the VelociRaptor and Seagate 15K.2 drives, the V Series puts up nearly identical performance in the database test. As far as the tests presented in the benchmark chart, the V Series still gives us around half of the performance in the all important workstation test.
