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).

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.
