Passmark Advanced Multi-User Tests

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 6.1

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 Corsair Force 3 is a consumer drive that is based on several enterprise technologies. The controller is built by SandForce, a company who's vision is to make the most amazing enterprise SSDs ever developed and the company is doing a really good job at that.
