Testing disk performance with fio

Disk performance is often the main performance issue in any high traffic servers and databases.

Instane sizing at humio do provide a good way to measure the disk read/write bandwidth using fio. The test might simulate how humio will
read/write. However, change the parameters accordingly.

sudo fio –filename=/data/fio-test.tmp –filesize=1Gi –bs=256K -rw=read –time_based –runtime=5s –name=read_bandwidth_test –numjobs=8 –thread –direct=1

I can be executed using a configuration file as well.

Create a file : humio-read-test.fio

[global]
thread
rw=read
bs=256Ki
directory=/data/fio-tmp-dir
direct=1

[read8]
stonewall
size=1Gi
numjobs=8
fio --bandwidth-log ./humio-read-test.fio
# Clean tmp files from fio:
rm /data/fio-tmp-dir/read8.?.?
