Benchmarks - iSCSI Workload Latency







File Server





Email Server





Web Server










iSCSI Enterprise Latency Summary


The latency is very low in all of the iSCSI workloads as well. In the Web Server test, the latency is nearly nonexistent.



Workload Power Consumption


We level the playing field in our power consumption test by using a single Seagate NAS 4TB HDD in each system during the test. This allows us to test the power consumption of the NAS, and not the amount of HDDs in it. It also allows us to test different drive count systems, and still compare the power consumption from the server and not the drives.


There are four tests, but each test section has a load and a cool down idle. The load portion is at the start of each section, and the idle is the second half.




You might think that since the Netgear ReadyNAS RN716X delivers higher performance in our iSCSI workloads, that it would use more power. That is actually not the case. The two most power hungry systems, Thecus N8900 and Thecus N8810U-G, use redundant power supplies, so we expected those systems to use more power. On the other hand, the Thecus N7710-G is a single PSU system like the Netgear RN716X, but still uses more power than the Netgear RN716X.
