IOMeter – Workload Performance with QD




Database started off with nearly 175 IOPS at QD1 and finished at QD32 with 300 IOPS.





File Server showed similar performance at QD1 with all drives, while at QD32, the IronWolf was a touch above the EnCap at 330 IOPS.




Email Server proved to be one of harder workloads for the IronWolf, starting out at 190 IOPS at QD1 and ending with 300 IOPS at QD32.




Web Server had all the drives up and running again starting near 150 IOPS and ending at 500 IOPS; the IronWolf did quite well in this workload.




Workstation peaked just over 300 IOPS for the IronWolf.



Latency with QD




Diving into the response times of Workloads testing, Database reached a peak of 110ms at QD32.




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




Email Server for the IronWolf hit 105ms at QD32, slightly lower than the EnCap 10TB.




Web Server, being one of the best workloads for the Seagate solutions, the IronWolf had a low 8ms starting point and reached 63ms at its peak.




Workstation ended at 103ms at QD32 about 95ms higher than where it started at 8ms QD1.
