Benchmarks - Multi-Client Test

 

The Intel NAS Performance Tool (NASPT) is an excellent way to determine NAS performance in a single user environment. Any review that only uses NASPT assumes that only a single computer will access the target NAS at one time. We took issue with this method of testing and spent over a year designing, building, programming and finally validating the TweakTown Multi-Client Test.

 

The test uses Microsoft Office data recorded to traces and played back to the NAS from up to 120 client Windows 7 installations (clients). We record total throughput of all clients and average response time per client.

 

Over time we'll populate the two multi-client charts with several NAS products from a span of categories. The products range from a dual Xeon server with 2x 10GbE to a 2-bay NAS with a single gigabit Ethernet connection. The products will fall into their performance categories based on performance and not marketing material or opinion.

 

 

Throughput

The multi-client test shows why the N8900 costs a bit more than the N8810U-G and N7710-G. The N8810U-G keeps pace all the way to 40 clients. but starts to flatten out at 48 clients.

 

 

Latency

The latency numbers show the same. The N7710-G and N8810U-G are right together through the test, while the N8900 keeps the latency a little lower.
