IOMeter v2006.07.27 


Iometer is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998 – since then it got wide spread within the industry.

Meanwhile Intel has discontinued to work on Iometer and it was given to the Open Source Development Lab (OSDL). In November 2001, a project was registered at SourceForge.net and an initial drop was provided. Since the relaunch in February 2003, the project is driven by an international group of individuals who are continuesly improving, porting and extend the product.

As we feared from our initial quick checks, the SiliconEdge was not scaling with Queue Depth.  Like Indilinx and Samsung, the Western Digital unit was stuck at it’s initial figure throughout each test.  Tests with a greater mix of simultaneous file sizes turned in lower numbers, pushing it to the bottom of the pack.  For the mostly 8KB access Database and Workstation tests, performance was almost identical to that of the OCZ Vertex.
