IOMeter – Workload Performance with QD


Database started off with nearly 200 IOPS at QD1 and finished at QD32 with 340 IOPS.


File Server showed similar performance at QD1 with all drives while at QD32 the Barracuda Pro reached 340 IOPS.


As you may have noted in the last few charts, there is certainly a difference between drives tuned for a set of workloads and one that is not. That holds true in Email Server as well with the Barracuda Pro starting off at 200 IOPS and ending at 320 IOPS at QD32.


Web Server let the Barracuda Pro stretch its legs a little starting a touch under 200 IOPS at QD1 and topping out near 600 IOPS at QD32.


Workstation started at 200 and ended at 330 IOPS.

Latency with QD


Diving into the response times of the Workloads testing, Database reached a peak of 90ms at QD32.


File Server touched a high of 90ms after starting out around 8ms at QD1


Email Server was just a shade under 100ms at QD32.


Web Server, being one of the best workloads for the Barracuda Pro, started out around 7ms and peaked at 60ms QD32.


More of the same for Workstation, as the Barracuda Pro starts at 9ms and ends near 90ms at QD32.
