A

The average I/O performance of a flash drive can be measured by running SQLIO with multiple 64-KB blocks with a large stripe factor.

Here is the read performance test of SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB Flash Drive on 64-KB blocks.

C:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kR -b64 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s60 -p0 E:\test.dat

using system counter for latency timings, 2343896 counts per second
1 thread reading for 60 secs from file D:\test.dat
	using 64KB IOs over 2048KB stripes with 64 IOs per run
	affinity on cpu number 0

Here is the write performance test of SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB Flash Drive on 64-KB blocks.

C:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kW -b64 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s60 -p0 E:\test.dat

using system counter for latency timings, 2343896 counts per second
1 thread writing for 60 secs to file D:\test.dat
	using 64KB IOs over 2048KB stripes with 64 IOs per run
	affinity on cpu number 0
