Iometer: Fileserver / Database server 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 Iridium Pro does not perform all too well in the fileserver test: it performs at about the same level as the OCZ Trion 150. In the database test it is slightly faster than the Samsung 850 Evo, but the 850 Pro which is a lot faster in these kinds of applications remains far out of reach.
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.
