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 power user system at home.

Kingston advertises the HyperX 3K as an enthusiast product, but with a price of less than $1 per GB and very high performance, we're hearing more stories about companies using consumer SSDs in their servers. These tests are for those looking for light use enterprise numbers.
