IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.
We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.
The official IOPS figure for the drive of up to 92,000 IOPS and 83,000 IOPS for random read/writes respectively is pretty much borne out by the test results, although it has to be said the random write figure of 80,801 IOPS is a little shy of the official figure.
