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 often vary between the manufacturer’s quoted ratings.
In Raid 0 the IOPS performance increases substantially, increasing to 102,041 IOPS in the 4k random read test and 97,253 in the 4k random write test. Intel’s official IOPS performance for a single drive is rated at 86,000 read and 56,000 write, so our results are actually better than Intel’s official claims.
