Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: RC6

 

So what is Anvil Storage Utilities? First of all, it's a storage benchmark for SSD's and HDD's where you can check and monitor your performance. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests, you can run a full test or just the read or the write test or you can run a single test, i.e. 4K DQ16.

 

Anvil Storage Utilities is not officially available yet but we've been playing with the beta for several months now. The author, Anvil on several international forums has been updating the software steadily and is adding new features every couple of months.

 

The software is used several different ways and to show different aspects for each drive. We've chosen to use this software to show the performance of a drive with two different data sets. The first is with compressible data and the second data set is incompressible data. Several users have requested this data in our SSD reviews.

Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

Our IOPS through queue depths showed a weak point for the HGST 7K1000, with the drive being the slowest in our charts. We peaked at 181 IOPS at QD32.

 

 

Scaling Write IOPS through Queue Scale

We find the 7K1000 in an equally bad place dealing with 4K write IOPS with queue depths. Write IOPS were equal across all stages of testing, peaking at 182 at QD4.
