A

The best way to find out the maximum reading speed of your hard disk is to run reading tests with a single large block of different block sizes:

sqlio -LS -kR -i1 -f1 -t1 -s30 -p0 ...

If we run SQLIO with above options and different block sizes, we should be able to find the maximum reading speed:

             Throughput   Throughput   Latency
Block Size      MBs/sec      IOs/sec        ms
----------   ----------   ----------   -------
       -b8         6.75       864.26         0
      -b16         9.03       578.38         1
      -b32        11.62       371.91         2
      -b64        15.36       245.77         3
     -b128        14.76       118.10         8
     -b256        14.90        59.63        16

As you can see, the maximum reading speed, 15.36 MBs/sec is reached with a block size of "-b64", or 64 KB.
