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.




The last two firmware updates for the Barefoot controller has evened these tests out quite a bit. Gone are the really high Web Server numbers, but gained is support for TRIM that makes the consumer user experience more pleasant. Still, SSDs are able to run circles around the fastest enterprise platter drives and the A-DATA S592 holds true to that statement.
