IOMeter – 4K Random Performance with QD




As mentioned, we do have the 10TB Red along for some of the testing and as you can see from the chart above the helium drives stick together. At QD1, we have a little under 200 IOPS for the 10TB Gold and moving to QD32 we end at 600 IOPS.





Random write IOPS start at 875 QD1 but then fall off to 600 IOPs QD2, and we finish up just under 600 IOPS QD32.



IOMeter – Sequential Performance with QD




The sequential performance started off at 53 MB/s read at QD1 but quickly jumped up to 220 MB/s at QD2, and we round out testing at QD32 at 260 MB/s.




Sequential write results had the WD Gold at 260 MB/s consistently QD1 through QD32.
