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 first time we heard about Toshiba Toggle flash being paired with a SandForce controller, it was on the Vertex 3 Pro, the enterprise drive that is used in situations where IOPS can be the bottleneck for performance. The Patriot Wildfire uses the same Toggle flash and it allows the 120GB Wildfire to run very close to the performance of the 240GB Vertex 3.
