SERVER PROFILES CONTINUED
The File Server profile is based on an 80% read/20% write mix. It’s made up of block sizes from 512 to 64K, each making up a different percentage of the access pattern. The pattern is: 512 bytes=10%, 1k=5%, 2k=5%, 4k=60%, 8k=2%, 16k=4%, 32k=4%, 64k=10%.
In this file server profile test the Kingston DC400 @800GB and Micron 5100 MAX are neck and neck, except the DC400 has better lower QD performance. The PM863 and HK4R, however, are better options here.
The Web Server profile is similar to the File Server profile, but has some additional 128K and 512K accesses thrown in for good measure. Additionally, the profile is 100% reads.
Finally, during the web server profile, we see that the DC400 is beat out where we were expecting it to do better. Form QD1-8 the 800GB over-provisioned model outperforms the Micron 5100 series, however, after that they take the lead.
