A

The I/O performance of reading and writing 1-MB files of a Azure Virtual HD on Windows 10 as the application drive "D:" can be measured by running SQLIO with multiple 1024-KB blocks with a large stripe factor.

Here is the read performance test of Azure Virtual HD on Windows 10 as the application drive "D:" with 1024-KB blocks.

D:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kR -b1024 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s30 -p0

using system counter for latency timings, 10000000 counts per second
1 thread reading for 60 secs from file d:\test.dat
	using 1024KB IOs over 65536KB stripes with 64 IOs per run
	affinity on cpu number 0

Here is the write performance test of Azure Virtual HD on Windows 10 as the application drive "D:" on 64-KB blocks.

D:\fyicenter\SQLIO>sqlio -LS -kW -b1024 -i64 -f64 -t1 -s30

CUMULATIVE DATA:
throughput metrics:
IOs/sec:  4385.23
MBs/sec:  4385.23
latency metrics:

Avg_Latency(ms): 0
Max_Latency(ms): 27
