PCPer File Copy Test
Our custom PCPer-FC test does some fairly simple file creation and copy routines in order to test the storage system for speed. The script creates a set of files of varying sizes, times the creation process, then copies the same files to another partition on the same hard drive and times the copy process as well. There are four file patterns that we used to try and find any strong or weak points in the hardware: 10 files @ 1000 MB each, 100 files @ 100 MB each, 500 files @ 10 MB each and 1000 files at 1 MB each.
The 512GB Force LX performs identically to the 512GB SSD wrk in our file creation and copy tests. The 256GB LX demonstrates how slower write speeds of that lower capacity unit negatively impact performance in comparison to the larger units.
