Benchmarks - Sequential Workloads

 

Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.

Sequential read performance was quite good for all three RAID modes, though RAID 0 and 10 stand out slightly more at 106 MB/s and 113 MB/s, respectively.

Sequential write shows a performance ceiling with our test setup around 118 MB/s. The ASUSTOR was able to illustrate this in all three RAID modes.

Latency results for read were slightly lower than the QNAP solution and a touch higher than the Synology unit with RAID 0, but switching over to RAID 5 changes that as the ASUSTOR finds itself in the middle of the pack.

Write latency was even more consistent with all three RAID modes staying within 0.6ms of each other throughout testing.
