Passmark Advanced Multi-User Tests

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.

Here we see that the Kingston SSDNow V+ doesn't fair too well against pure server class drives, but is able to run with the Indilinx Barefoot drives in many tests. At this point we have seen Indilinx dial in their firmware; they have been doing so for over a year now and the Toshiba controller is still fresh so later firmware updates will surely increase performance in these and other tests.
