Anvil Storage Utilities
Version and / or Patch Used: RC6
So, what is Anvil Storage Utilities? Anvil Storage Utilities, is a storage benchmark for SSDs and HDDs where you can check and monitor your performance. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test, or just the read or the write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.
Anvil Storage Utilities is not officially available yet, but we've been playing with the beta for several months now. The author, Anvil, has been updating the software steadily on several international forums, and is adding new features every couple of months.
We can use Anvil several different ways to show different aspects for each drive. We have chosen this software to show the performance of a drive with two different data sets. The first is with compressible data, and the second data set is incompressible data. Several users have requested this data in our SSD reviews.
0-Fill Compressible Data
SLC flash tames the SF-2281 controller's incompressible data slump. The flash is so fast that it keeps the incompressible performance nearly as high as the compressible data performance when writing data. This throws the only real negative of using SandForce controllers out the window.
Low Queue Depth Read IOPS
High Queue Depth Read IOPS
The Fujitsu FSXtreme 240GB delivers the highest QD1 4k random read performance we've measured on a single SATA SSD. We often talk about the importance of a product delivering 10K random read IOPS at QD1, but the FSXtreme achieves nearly 13K. This level of performance allows your applications to open in record time.
At high queue depths, the FSXtreme levels off at 75K IOPS; however, it's very difficult to get to the high IOPS range with a consumer SSD because the drives are so fast, and consumer workloads are not that demanding.
Low Queue Depth Write IOPS
High Queue Depth Write IOPS
The FSXtreme 240GB shows very good low queue depth random write performance that scales very well to high queue ranges, and tops out at over 90K IOPS.
