Many users complain that I/O Meter is too complicated of a benchmark to replicate results so my quest to find an alternative was started. Passmark has added several multi-user tests that measure a hard drives ability to operate in a multi-user environment.

The tests use different settings to mimic basic multi-user operations as they would play out on your server. Variances is read / write percentage as well as random / sequential reads are common in certain applications, Web Servers read nearly 100% of the time while Database Servers write a small amount of data.

The Workstation test is the only single user environment and will be similar to how you use your system at home.

Here we see that the surprises just keep on coming, but this time in the opposite direction. The latest 1819 firmware appears to have slowed the Web Server Test down by almost half. This may have more to do with us testing the 64GB model of the Falcon II than anything else, but it is difficult to tell since we rarely test 64GB SSDs. Other than the Web Server Test, the Falcon II performs better than I expected for a 64GB drive.
