IO Analyzer Performance Profiles




These are the existing and preconfigured IO Analyzer profiles:

VSAN test profiles:

I have added the VSAN profiles manually. You need to manually upload the icf files to /var/www/configs


You can download the files here:

 
 

PernixData FVP test profiles:

I have created together with my friends at PernixData two special PernixData FVP profiles.

The first one (PRNX_4K_100Read_100ran.icf) is using 4 workers, each with 16 outstanding IO and a Block Size of 4KB, 100% Read, 100% Random. The second one (PRNX_BurstyOLTP.icf) is using a combination of reads and writes of 4KB.

Here are the details about the different profiles:
