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 set IOmeter up (as shown above) to test both backup and restore performance on a 100GB partition.
The TS-453Be had no problems dealing with our backup/restore tests. With a 10GbE connection the transfer speed averaged 339.87MB/s when backing up data and 258.94MB/s when restoring it. With a single 1GbE connection, the average backup speed was 101.15MB/s with restores coming in at 91.55MB/s.
