A

The I/O performance of reading and writing 64-KB files of a Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 ATA HD can be measured by running SQLIO with multiple 64-KB blocks with a large stripe factor.

Here is the read performance test of Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 ATA HD on Azure VM with 64-KB blocks.

C:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kR -b64 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s30 -p0

using system counter for latency timings, 3312919 counts per second
1 thread reading for 300 secs from file test.dat
	using 64KB IOs over 4096KB stripes with 64 IOs per run
	affinity on cpu number 0

Here is the write performance test of Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 ATA HD on Azure VM on 64-KB blocks.

C:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kW -b64 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s30 

using system counter for latency timings, 3312919 counts per second
1 thread writing for 300 secs to file test.dat
	using 64KB IOs over 4096KB stripes with 64 IOs per run
	affinity on cpu number 0
size of file test.dat needs to be: 268435456 bytes

CUMULATIVE DATA:
throughput metrics:
IOs/sec:   541.90
MBs/sec:    33.86
latency metrics:
Min_Latency(ms): 0
Avg_Latency(ms): 1
Max_Latency(ms): 364
histogram:
