Benchmarks - Sequential Workloads



Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 128K transfer sizes.




Starting with Sequential read performance, all three modes seem to do quite well maxing out the capabilities of our gigabit ethernet connection at 118 MB/s.




Sequential write was similar with RAID 0 and 5 touch 118 MB/s and RAID 6 115 MB/s.




Benchmarks - Mixed Workloads




RAID 0 workload testing showed quite clearly, the Asustor excels with database reaching over 3000 IOPS. File Server topped out at 1750 IOPs and Email just under 1500 IOPs.




RAID 5 or SHR1 for Synology units had flipped File Server to the top reaching a peak of 1900 IOPs.




RAID 6 or SHR2 for Synology devices, had database at the peak once again with the AS7004T-i5 reaching 1400 IOPs.
