Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads
Our 4K Random read/write workload consists of 16 threads all at QD16, results our measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).
Above, we found the LinkStation did quite well in 4K write operations coming in well above both the Terra Master and Thecus units. Read operations came in at 136.9 IOPS.
RAID 1 again had the LinkStation doing quite well with random write, here we have 823 IOPS.
Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes again with 16 threads and a Queue Depth of 16.
In RAID 0 sequential testing, the LinkStation was on par with other NAS appliances in our charts, coming in at 109 read IOPS and 83 write IOPS.
RAID 1 allowed the LinkStation 108 read IOPS and 75 write IOPS, giving it the top spot in sequential read and second in write.
