Yapt v0.3

Yapt v0.3 


Yapt (yet another performance test) is a benchmark recommended to me by a pair of drive manufacturers and was incredibly difficult to locate as it hasn’t been updated or used in quite some time.  That doesn’t make it irrelevent by any means though, as the benchmark is quite useful.  It creates a test file of about 100 MB in size and runs both random and sequential read and write tests with it while changing the data I/O size in the process.  The results are a good look at overal drive performance.

On our two random tests, the iRAM is able to outperform the fastest traditional hard drive by more than 2x at optimal results for the standard drives.  That equates to about 130 MB/s vs. 62 MB/s in each case.

The sequential results show that all the tested drives have very consistent results through the varying I/O block sizes, but that the iRAM is still able to demolish them.
