The test is designed to measure the sequential Read and
Write IO performance for two IO Sizes, when under Steady State conditions. One
can easily compare the results produced by this test with box-top numbers,
which are usually stated as “Up to xxx MB/S”.
Please note that this test was run with IO sizes of 8K and
128K (as 128K is the largest IO size supported by the Intel P3700).
Here are the results –
You can see here that Steady State was achieved for both
Write IO sizes by the end of Round 5.
You can see here that Steady State for both Read IO sizes
was achieved by the end of Round 6.
Here are the average values recorded in the measurement
Again, simply awesome results.
For interest we present a comparison of the sequential reads
and writes performance in comparison with those of the other Enterprise SSDs we
have tested –
Please note that the Intel P3700’s results are for an IO
size of 128K (as 128K is the largest IO Size it supports). All other the other
drives’ results are for an IO Size of 1024K, which is typically the block size
with which an SSD will achieve its highest level of throughput.
Simply awesome results, again!
Now let’s head to the next page, to look at the results
of the SNIA Latency Test…..
