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’ve added 128KB Sequential read/write, 4K random read/write & 4K 70/30 mixed tests at a range of queue depths to our original 4K random read/write test.
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.
In our 4K Random read/write test, the 3D TLC NAND equipped M9Pe(Y) gave a write result of 144,513 IOPS outpacing the previous generation’s M8PeG which uses MLC NAND. However when it came to read performance the results were reversed.
