    Nice tool for benchmarking SSD's and other storage devices


    Hi all -

    My contribution for today...

    AJA System Test: Drive Performance Stats You Can TrustAccurately test your system performance using System Test, available in free retail software builds for KONA, Io and T-TAP products

    The free System Disk Test is very well done and I suggest it for benchmarking your OS SSD or test between other storage devices.
    Many people think that a SATA SSD is good enough - just wait until you run this on a PCIe/NVMe configuration and/or Type C USB 3.2.

    FWIW.

    Hmm, I don't know, what do you think?

    For comparison:

    This is a regular SSD:

    For people, who always wonder, what is the point of using RAMdisk, well it is only 500% faster.

    I experimented with this app but find it not usable on my system. It does not like my display resolution of 4096 x 2160 as it will not scale to a legible size. It does not display the output of the test runs correctly as a result and truncates the displayed results. Further the help does not work and I have no idea how Frame rates figure into this scenario for disk testing.

    In reviewing I would have to consider this app as not ready for prime time. I will be sticking with CrystalDiskMark.

    I only use it for quick R/W testing. Nothing else.

    Many other real-world benchmarking programs out there.

    Indeed there are other benchmarks but I wouldn't go as far as calling them real world. For synthetic benchmarking of disk subsystems it is hard to beat CrystalDiskMark version 8.0.1 at this point in time. Using the venerable I/O Meter as an underlying base for testing is tried a true, about as close to real world as possible.

    Example below using DiskMark of the same disk subsystem of my OP. The test was run against an MS Tiered Storage Spaces device consisting of:

    • A level 1 (L1) ram cache of 14GB
    • A level 2 (L2) SSD cache of 223GB (NVMe)
    • A Fast Storage Tier of 1TB (Mirrored 2x500GB SATA III SSD)
    • A Capacity Storage Tier of 18.76TB (5x8TB SATA III HDD)

    The above is not a member of a clustered storage pool therefore performance of such is usually dismal to say the best of it. As you can see I have been able to configure an arrangement that addresses the performance issue of such an arrangement when running the setup on a Windows 10 Pro Workstation OS.
