SanDisk ioMemory/Fusion-io ioDrive – Baseline tests with FIO based on Windows 2012R2

This post shows the baseline FOB raw peak performance of the SanDisk PX600-1000 which is installed in Testverse with Windows 2012R2. I used the “fio” (Flexible IO Tester) for this test. “fio” is the preferred tool to test SanDisk/Fusion-IO ioDrive/ioMemory/SSD.

I make use of the Sample Windows “fio” job files. The specification shows four metrics (READ/WRITE bandwidth,Ran.READ/WRITE 4K) which I tested here with the job files:

  • fio-job-04 = fio random 1M write peak BW
  • fio-job-09 = fio random 1M read peak BW
  • fio-job-010 = fio random 4K read peak IOPS
  • fio-job-011 = fio random 4K write peak IOPS

Results:

fio-job-09 = fio random 1M read peak BW

The following graph shows the IO bandwidth for each thread. The average bandwidth for all four threads is 2590.2MB/s
