IOMeter is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998. Since then, it has seen widespread use within the industry.
IO Meter shows a near-win in the Total I/O Write/s and Total MB/s Write testing, right behind the recently-tested OCZ Vertex 4 SSD. The other tests showed a good read response time and a decent write response time. The CPU Utilization % results appears to be a mirror image of the Total I/O results, which makes intuitive sense. Higher I/O rates require more juice from the CPU.
