Benchmarks - SMB Workloads




RAID 0 started our SMB workloads with the ASUSTOR unit finding its peak performance with workstation at 390 IOPS. Web Server was second at 347 IOPS, while File Server wasn't far behind at 318 IOPS.





Next up, we have our RAID 5 array where the AS5004T again excelled workstation at 358 IPS with Web Server, File Server and Database all within 10 IOPS of each other.




RAID 10 was good for the AS5004T where the NAS peaked at 387 IOPS in workstation, followed by 385 IOPS with Web Server.




Workload latency for the AS5004T was quite high and in some cases the highest on our charts as the case with Email Server on RAID 0. The ASUSTOR peaked at 157ms in this case, while the lowest point came with Workstation at 81ms.




RAID 5 gave us similar results and again we find Email Server causing the highest latency at 178ms, while Workstation was the lowest at 89ms.




Moving on to RAID 10, we found both Web Server and Workstation hovering around 83ms.
