IOMeter - Workload Performance with QD
I was really quite impressed by the performance of the Seagate Archive when moving through workload testing. Starting with Database, which is a 80/20 workload, we found the Archive drive to start at 184 IOPS and reach a peak of 534 IOPS which was much better at the higher queue depths than both the Desktop 4 and 5TB solutions.
File Server again showed some good numbers as the Archive HDD topped out at 431 IOPS.
Email server was the first workload to show a performance loss at higher QD but alas the Archive HDD was able to reach 505 IOPS at QD8.
Web Server scaling was slightly slower with the Archive HDD over the two previously tested solutions. At QD1, we did grab 108 IOPS out of the drive, while QD32 managed 305 IOPS just 13 shy of the 4TB Desktop HDD.
Workstation positioned the Archive HDD just above the 4TB Desktop solution at higher queue depths with 229 IOPS.
