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.
IOPS performance is strong, although the 4k random read test we ran fell a little short of the 90,000 claims by OCZ. On the other hand, the 4K random write test outperformed the 140,000 claims by OCZ – hitting 167,108. Superb results.
