We tested the TVS-673e with a number of scenario’s 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 depth 128
In the File Server workload test over a 1GbE connection, the TVS-673e shows excellent consistency across all the arrays with the exception of the RAID 6 performance where the performance dropped off quite sharply. Needless to say, the 10GbE performance is mightily impressive.
As with the File Server test, in the Web Server test the 1GbE performance is very consistent across the arrays at 112GB/s. Taking the RAID 0 result of the equation, the RAID 6 performance in this test when using a 10GbE connection is stunning.
As with the File Server test, in the Workstation test the 1GbE performance is very consistent across the arrays at an average of 87.29MB/s. With a 10GbE connection, the average across the arrays is 179.72MB/s.
