Iometer: Fileserver / Databaseserver simulation (mixed workloads)
Even though we are testing a consumer SSD, for completeness' sake we also ran the file server and database server simulation workloads, in order to obtain a comprehensive impression of the drives' performance. The chart below shows the results for queue depth 32. Please refer to the test procedure page for a description of these tests.
The Intel 600p performs worse than other PCI-Express SSDs in our fileserver and database simulation, although it does outperform the SATA600 models by quite a bit.
The Fileserver workload consists of 80% read- and 20% write commands.
The database workload consists of 67% read- and 33% write commands with a base blocksize of 8 KB.
