We proceed to IOMeter benchmark. Iometer is run by using workstation and database patterns for queue depths (outstanding I/Os) of two and 32, representing very light and moderate loads. Iometer is both a workload generator (that is, it performs I/O operations in order to stress the system) and a measurement tool (that is, it examines and records the performance of its I/O operations and their impact on the system). The app's ability to bombard drives with an escalating number of concurrent IO requests also does a nice job of simulating the sort of demanding multi-user environments that are common in enterprise applications. It can be used for measurement of the performance of an SSD. We run the IOMeter tests using the Xtreme Benchmark template .
With 19165.79 combined IOPS, the Vertex 3 MI 240GB SSD rounds out the high-end of all solid state drive devices. In addition, the average I/O response time was just 0.4170 ms:
Below you see the results of Futuremark's PCMark 7 Professional edition. The drive scored 5354 points. Below you see the performance of the OCZ Vertex 3 MI 240GB SSD in various tasks defined by the software:
Below you see the performance of the SSD compared to some other SSDs we have tested in the past:
