We precondition the drive for 16,000 seconds, or 4.44 hours, receiving performance data every second. We plot this data to observe the test subject's descent into steady-state. We plot both IOPS and Latency. We plot IOPS (represented by blue scatter) in thousands and Latency (represented by orange scatter) in milliseconds.
We observe steady-state is achieved at 5,000 seconds of preconditioning for the 2TB DC P4510. Average steady-state workload performance at QD256 is approximately 90K IOPS. We observe steady-state is achieved at 15,000 seconds of preconditioning for the 8TB DC P4510. Average steady-state workload performance at QD256 is approximately 144K IOPS. Both drives exhibit quality consistency with very few IO's that could be considered outliers.
An On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) / Database workload is a demanding 8K test with a 66/33 percent R/W distribution. OLPT is online processing of financial transactions such as credit cards and high-frequency trading in the financial sector. Database workloads are challenging for any storage solution.
It's all about performance in the operating region and again, this is where we find Intel's DC P4510 delivering the goods. Micron's 9100 MAX comes closest to matching the 2TB DC P4510 at the edge of the operating region but compared with the 8TB model it's no contest. The 8TB DC P4510 annihilates the competing SSDs that comprise our test pool because its low queue performance is so good. At QD1-2 both of our test subjects are delivering almost double the performance of the 9100MAX and more than double the performance of the Techman XC100.
Conclusion (TL;DR): It's clear by this point that Intel's DC P4510 series not only lives up to its read-centric nature, but it also delivers the best-mixed workload performance of any SSD we've tested to date.
