Benchmarks - SMB Workloads


Starting off our SMB workloads, we find the Synology unit doing quite well with our database workload. Starting off at 323 IOPS at QD1 with its peak coming at 451 IOPS at QD8.


Moving to File Server, we see the Synology unit scale quite well through the queue depth. Here we have results starting at 252 IOPS at QD1 and ending at 418 IOPS at QD128.


Email server started off at a very nice 215 IOPS and scaled quite well up to QD4 with a small drop off after.


Web Server showed some pretty impressive scaling from 186 IOPS at QD1 through QD128 where we ended at 445 IOPS.


Moving our NAS back to RAID 1, we start again with database where we see peak IOPS coming in at 339 at QD16.


On to file server where we find a great start at 225 IOPS at QD1 with a peak of 415 IOPS at QD64.


Email server showed some good scaling that moved in the same pattern as the Asustor. Peak IOPS came at QD2.


Lastly, we have the Web Server workload with some amazing scaling. 152 IOPS is where we start at QD1 which then quickly ramps up to a peak of 531 IOPS at QD128.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
