This is useful for finding if certain offsets have very high latencies. Iozone Filesystem Benchmark IOzone is a filesystem benchmark tool. An iozonne would be to have an array in memory that is also being maintained as a file in the files system. Once this mapping is in place then stores to this location in memory will result in the mswotd being stored going to a file. The type of graph used is “Surface”.
This test measures the performance of writing a file using the library function fwrite. The place on the lower right that touches the floor of the graph is not actual data. In general you should be able to see three or four plateaus. It is normal for the rewrite performance to be higher than the performance of writing a new file. During the throughput tests all threads or processes are forced to a barrier before beginning the test.
Notice the performance dip at record sizes of Kbytes.
What is “iozone”
This flag allows one to turn off the stonewalling and see what happens. The cleaning will take time and msqord cause a longer latency for the write to complete.
Iozoje will create latency versus offset data files that can be imported with a graphics package and plotted. It is used during the throughput tests.
Produces output that covers all tested file operations for record sizes of 4k to 16M for file sizes of 64k to M. One can see from the data the impacts of the extent allocations for extent based filesystems with this option.
It is used internally for buffer alignment and for the purge functionality. This is useful when the unmount option is used.

After that the rest should be straight forward. This is used internally to help speed up the test. Most operating systems do not detect this behavior or implement any techniques to enhance the performance under this type of access behavior. If the system would have been characterized before it was purchased it would never have made it into the building.
Only available on some platforms. If you don’t see at least 3 plateaus then you probably have the maximum file size set too small. Just copy Iozone to wherever you wish to test the filesystem performance and then run it.
This is handy if an application wishes to treat files as chunks of memory. The code starts all threads or processes and then stops them on a barrier. When running throughput tests this option allows the user to specify the greatest number of processes or threads to start.
Iozone will allocate another internal buffer that is aligned to the same processor cache boundary and is of a size that matches the processor cache. The normal output for Iozone as well as the Excel portion are in the same output stream. This may seem like a strange way to read a file but in fact there are applications that do this. This is generally sufficient but for some very large systems you may need to use the —g option to increase the maximum file size.
The number of names should be equal to the number of processes or threads that are specified.
Many operating systems have tested and tuned the filesystem so it works well with mswogd. Others have an array of buffers. This option allows one to delay a specified time in microseconds between releasing each of the processes or threads. The load may now shift from a random reader application database to a msowrd reader. When both the file size and the transfer size is less than the processor cache it rises even higher.
