Originally made by William Norcott, SCO OpenServer, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows (95/98/Me/NT/2K/XP). I wrote this book using Microsoft Word 98 for the Macintosh. Hence, the screen shots, menus, etc. might look a little different if you are using a different version or .

This test is the same as fread above except that in this test the file that is being read was read in the recent past. This is iozome when the unmount option is used.

Only available on some platforms.

IOzone Msword 98 Documents – VDOKUMENTS

Some applications prefer to treat files as arrays of memory. The —a option in Iozone tells Iozone to discontinue use of transfer sizes less than 64k once the file size is 32MB or bigger.

After that the rest should be straight forward. This tells the operating system that all the data in the mmap space needs to be written to disk synchronously. Excel importable output for graph generation. msworf

You may see another plateau if the platform has a primary and secondary processor caches. It is normal for the rewrite performance to be higher than the performance of writing a new file. Byte offset, size of transfer, compute delay in milliseconds. Definitions of the tests Write: It is used internally for buffer alignment and for the purge functionality.

When running throughput tests this option allows the user to msaord the greatest number of processes or mmsword to start.


What is “iozone”

For example if your system has 1 Gbyte of memory then you would want ipzone try something like: When testing with unmount between tests it is necessary for the temporary file under test to be in a directory that can be unmounted. The cleaning will take time and will cause a longer latency for the write to complete. MSC Nastran is an example of an application that reads its files backwards.

An example would be: The semantics of mmap files is somewhat different than msaord files.

This ensures that the entire measurement was taken while all of the processes or threads were running in parallel. One may also specify -s k size in Kbytes or -s m size in Mbytes or -s g size in Gbytes. It is not possible to unmount the current working msowrd as the process Iozone is running in this directory.

This forces all writes to the file to go completely to disk before returning to the benchmark. The second time the file is written the latencies will be very high.

The simplest way to get started is to try the automatic mode. Here one can see that there are some file sizes and some record sizes that have very bad performance. The load may now shift from a random reader application database to a sequential reader. Msaord you wish to get accurate results for the entire range of performance for a platform you need to make sure that the maximum file size that will be tested is bigger than the buffer cache.

The benchmark generates and measures a variety of file operations.

Use —az —i 0 —i 1 instead. Stonewalling in throughput tests to eliminate straggler effects. This test measures the performance of writing a file that already exists.


This cache can be used to satisfy reads and improves the performance. This saves quite a bit of time. Others have an array of buffers.

The following is the output from the built in help. This file may be msworr with Microsoft Excel space delimited and used to create a graph of the filesystem performance. The users may discover that the machine is very slow when running this new application and become dissatisfied with the decision to purchase this platform.

When importing the file be sure to tell Excel to import with “delimited” and then click next, then click on the “space delimited” button. This option forces Iozone to include the small record sizes in the automatic tests also. Notice the performance dip at record sizes of Kbytes.

The reason that this occurs when the file is bigger than the buffer cache is because the write to the first block on the rewrite case will not find the block in the buffer cache and will be forced to clean a buffer before using it. See also -X and -Y for other options iozohe control compute delay. One might consider using it before your company purchases its next platform.

This document will cover the many different types of operations that are tested as well as coverage of all of the command line options.
