Some applications prefer to treat files as arrays of memory. Pick the one that matches your configuration and then type: This test is writing to an existing file so the performance should be higher as there are no metadata operations required.

You will need to select this when graphing as the default in Excel is row oriented data. Iozone will create latency versus offset data files that can be imported with a graphics package and plotted. The 3D graphs ioxone column oriented. This flag allows one to iozonr off the stonewalling and see what happens.

The first field is the name of the client. Source code availability Iozone is available for free.

This option allows both types of applications to be simulated. Once the total number of cpus is exceeded then future processes or threads will be placed in a round robin fashion.



Use —az —i 0 —i 1 instead. Iozone —a If you wish to generate graphs then you may wish to turn on Excel mode. The latency graphs can help to identify high latencies for files that are being 9 over the network. Many vendors have enhanced their operating systems to perform well for some frequently used applications.

What is “iozone”

Others have an array of buffers. Also note that the processor cache effects can be seen for file sizes of 16 Kbytes to 1Mbyte. This document will cover the many different types of operations that are tested as well as coverage of all of the command line options. The —a option will automatically stop using transfer sizes less than 64k once the file size is 32 MB or larger. During the throughput tests all threads or processes are forced to a barrier before beginning the test.

When importing the file be sure to tell Excel to import with “delimited” and then click next, then click on the “space delimited” button. Definitions of the tests Write: These files can be imported into Excel and then graphed.

This is used internally to help speed up the test. Another type of graph that can be produced is the Latency graph. A sign in column zero is a comment line. 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. Anomaly 1 There is also a dropoff for file sizes of 8 MB and larger.


It is used during the throughput tests. The cleaning will take time and will cause a longer latency for the write to complete.

The next plateau to the right is buffer cache and finally above MB the file no longer fits in the buffer cache and real spindle speeds can be seen. Iozone will unmount and remount this mount point before beginning each test.

This option is useful if one has taken a system call trace of the application that is of interest. Including the close helps to reduce the client side cache effects of NFS version 3.

An example would be if the file size is just a bit bigger than the buffer iozond size.
