iozone - Iozone Filesystem Benchmark
||Scientific Linux CERN, http://cern.ch/linux
IOzone is a filesystem benchmark tool. The benchmark generates and
measures a variety of file operations. Iozone has been ported to many machines and runs under many operating systems.
Iozone is useful for performing a broad filesystem analysis of a vendors
computer platform. The benchmark tests file I/O performance for the following
operations: Read, write, re-read, re-write, read backwards, read strided,
fread, fwrite, random read, pread ,mmap, aio_read, aio_write.
