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 become very wide spread within the industry.
4k Read & Write Tests
The Startup testing tracks the time it takes to load the operating system to the desktop on a cold boot. The time starts when the power button on the chassis is pressed and the time stops when the last program has loaded into the task bar.
The shutdown testing consists of tracking the time that it takes for the computer to shut down completely once the operating system is shut down using the shutdown function in the operating system. Time starts when the shutdown button is pressed and time stops when the computer has shut down with the computer powered down completely.
Throughout all the tests, this drive performed either at or above where it should be. I am very impressed overall with the refinement Zalman has given to the S Series as it is showing in these tests.
