Benchmarks - Random and Sequential Workloads




Our 4K Random read/write workload consists of sixteen threads all at QD8, results our measured in IOPS (Input Output Operations per Second).


RAID 0, 4K performance was quite impressive amongst units tested. Write performance topped our charts at 2034 IOPS, while 4K read was near the bottom.




RAID 5 had the N4560 showing again impressive write performance at 650 IOPS. Read performance suffered at 148 IOPS.




With RAID 10, we find more of the same. 4K writes landed at 1047 IOPS while reads managed just 148 IOPS.


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes again with sixteen threads and a Queue depth of 8.




In RAID 0 sequential read/write, we find the N4560 in line with previous units. Reads topped at 92 MB/s while writes reached 109 MB/s.




Moving over to RAID 5, the NAS was capable of 88 MB/s write, followed by 57 MB/s read.




Setting up RAID 10 on the N4560, we touched 80 MB/s write and 71 MB/s read.
