As the name implies, IOmeter is a benchmark utility for the I/O subsystem, which is currently maintained and developed by Open Source Development Lab. IOmeter is set to use 4kb chunks with a queue depth of 32 I/O operations equally divided between read and write. Measurement is given in total IOPS in a two minute period. This particular script does not necessarily emulate real world conditions and has been known to favor the SandForce controller based SSD solutions.
*We have tested with multiple IOmeter scripts and have found that, based on the script, it favored one controller over the other. IOmeter is a popular SSD benchmark for its reliability, but a script written for the specific NAND tested will benefit that NAND. We have chosen to use a 4K file which will be used for all subsequent reviews, unless otherwise specified*
