Benchmarks - Enterprise Workloads and Latency




OLTP peaked out at 323.7 IOPS at QD32 over our single gigabit connection.




Average response time for the OLTP workload reached 98.6ms at QD32, almost doubling results from QD16.




The file server workload was able to top 400 IOPS at QD32.




Response time for the file server scaled quite well through QD16, with QD32 resting at 77.6ms.




Next we have the email server, where the TeraStation peaked at 249.4 IOPS.




Email server response time again scaled quite well up to QD8; we then have a slightly higher rise in response time eventually peaking at 126.7ms at QD32.




The web server showed the TeraStation coming in at 712.7 IOPS peak.




Web server response time was a bit erratic, as you can see. Here we have 16.1ms at QD2; then, the server actually gains performance at QD4.




Our workstation testing has the Buffalo topping 400 IOPS, again at QD32.




Workstation response times showed similar results to what we have seen throughout testing. Here we have a good amount of scaling through QD16 and then a large increase at QD32.
