ZFSBuild2012 – Testing has begun

We are re-running the original ZFSBuild2010 tests, and initial results are that this system is significantly faster than the old system.  4k Random Reads are peaking out at over 50,000 IOPS, delivering over 200MB/sec over Infiniband.  8k random reads delivering 40,000 IOPS and over 300MB/sec over Infiniband.  These numbers are AWESOME!

Keep in mind though, this is with a 25GB working set.  ZFSBuild 2010 only had 12GB of RAM, not nearly enough to cache even 25GB of data.  ZFSBuild 2012 has 64GB of RAM, allowing to put all of this data in RAM.  We’ll be tailoring the benchmarks after this run to more accurately reflect real world workloads, as we know the 25GB working set size is giving us artificially high results.

Look for more info in the next week or so!
