Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads

 

Our 4K Random read/write workload consists of sixteen threads, all at QD8; results are measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).

 

Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes; again, with sixteen threads, and a Queue Depth of 8.

RAID 0, 4K performance had the RN104 coming in at 1611 write IOPS, with read IOPS touching 149.6.

Within RAID 5, we found the RN104 stayed consistent with read IOPS; write IOPs came in at 488.9.

With RAID 10, we find the RN104 to be a touch faster than the N4560 from Thecus. Here, we have peak write IOPs at 1304, and read consistent once again at 142 IOPS.

Moving on to our sequential workloads, we found the ReadyNAS touching 63 MB/s read, and 46 MB/s write.

Moving over to RAID 5, the RN104 slowed down quite a bit. Here, we have 28 MB/s read, and 39 MB/s write.

Above, we have the results from RAID 10, where we found the RN104 touching 46 MB/s read, and 51 MB/s write.
