What is “iozone”

These are read offset latency, write offset latency, mzword offset latency and iozons offset latency. Normally, all of the threads or processes are released at the same moment.

The benchmark generates and measures a variety of file operations. Byte offset, size of transfer, compute delay in milliseconds. These high latencies can be caused by a variety of causes. Iozone Filesystem Benchmark IOzone is a filesystem benchmark tool. By using Iozone to get a broad filesystem performance coverage the buyer is much more likely to see any hot or cold spots and pick a platform and operating system that is more well balanced.

One may also specify -r k size in Kbytes or -r m size in Mbytes or -r g size in Gbytes. Not all platforms scale mwsord well. This option allows the user to specify how many threads or processes to have active during the measurement.


After that the rest should be straight forward. This flag allows one to turn off the stonewalling and see what happens.

This is useful for finding if certain offsets have very high latencies.

Others have an array of buffers. Once this mapping is in place then stores to this location in memory mswogd result in the data being stored going to a file. Most operating systems do not detect this 89 or implement any techniques to enhance the performance under this type of access behavior. The —a option will automatically stop using transfer sizes less than 64k once the file size is 32 MB or larger.

Anomaly 1 There is also a dropoff for file sizes of 8 MB and larger. Produces output that covers all tested file operations for record sizes of 4k to 16M for file sizes of 64k to M.

This option allows one to override the default and to use multiple internal buffers. This is due to the fact that the buffer cache is now completely full of dirty data that must be written before the buffer can be reused. Also note that the processor cache effects can be seen for file sizes of 16 Kbytes to 1Mbyte. One can see from the data the impacts of the extent allocations for extent based filesystems with this option.


Notice the performance dip at record sizes of Kbytes.

Stonewalling is a technique used internally to Iozone. The semantics of mmap files is somewhat different than normal files. The first time the file is written the latency will be low for each transfer.

Iozone will default to a maximum file size of Mbytes. This may be needed if the client is running NFS version 3. It is used internally mswoed buffer alignment and for the purge functionality. The dropoff for files greater than 8MB is very interesting since this machine has 16 GB of memory and an 8GB buffer cache.

See also -X and -Y for other options to control compute delay. If you don’t know how big the buffer cache is, or if it is a dynamic buffer cache then just set the maximum file size to be greater than the total physical memory that is in the platform.

It will zero fill this alternate buffer before beginning each test. An example would be to have an array in memory that is also iiozone maintained as a file in the files system.
