We tested the IronWolf 110 with a number of workloads that it may face in the real world. The settings for these scenarios are as follows.
512MB file size, 16KB Block size, 80% Read 20% Write 100% Random, I/O queue depth 128
1GB file size, 16KB Block size, 100% Read 0% Write 100% Random, I/O queue depth 64
2GB file size, 4KB Block size, 90% Read 10% Write, 90% Random, 10% Sequential, I/O queue depth 128
1GB file size, 16KB Block size, 70% Read 30% Write, 50% Random 50% Sequential, I/O depth 1
160GB file size, 64K Block size, 98% Read 2% Write, 100% Sequential, I/O queue depth 64, Threads/Workers: 8
The 240GB IronWolf 110 showed strong performance across all of the workloads we tested on it, particularly the 529MB/s Media Streaming figure and the 50MB/s performance for the Database workload.
