Testing – Sandra Physical Disks & Anvil
Sandra Physical Disks benchmark is built into SiSoftware’s Sandra software suite. It tests drive performance and gives you a drive score and random access time.
Good results on both tests.
The next test is Anvil Storage Utilities, which is a really great piece of software. The SSD benchmark gives you scores for both read and write as well as a combined score.
We used Anvil’s threaded I/O test to benchmark IOPS. The block size was set at 4k and the queue depth was set at 32.
