Iometer - Maximum IOPS

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure high queue depth performance. (No Partition)

 

Max IOPS Read

Regarding maximum IOPS, the 370S performs quite well, delivering the second highest read IOPS and third highest write IOPS of the drives in our test pool.

 

 

Iometer - Disk Response

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Iometer 2014

 

We use Iometer to measure disk response times. Disk response times are measured in an industry accepted standard of 4K QD1 for both write and read. Each test runs twice for 30 seconds consecutively, with a 5-second ramp-up before each test. We partition the drive/array as a secondary device for this testing.

Avg. Read Response

There isn't a whole lot separating the drives in our test pool. The 370S has the highest read latency and second highest write latency of the bunch.

 

 

DiskBench - Directory Copy

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.6.2.0

 

We use DiskBench to time a 28.6GB block (9,882 files in 1,247 folders) composed primarily of incompressible sequential and random data as it's transferred from our DC P3700 PCIe NVME SSD to our test drive. We then read from a 6GB zip file that's part of our 28.6GB data block to determine the test drives read transfer rate. Our system is restarted before the read test to clear any cached data, ensuring an accurate test result.

Read Transfer Rate

Regarding transfer rates, the 370S delivers average performance for an MLC SSD.
