The file server test follows the same path as the previously discussed database and workstation workload tests. The IOPS doesn't increase too far past the 100 mark and never shows a real leap as the load increases with additional queue depth from workers.

The email server test is the first to show any real performance increase as the queue depth increases.

The uptick in performance didn't last long. The web server IOPS chart shows flat line performance again, regardless of the queue depth load we sent to the DL4100.
