- http://www.iozone.org/ Iozone is useful for performing a broad filesystem analysis of a vendor's computer platform. The benchmark tests file I/O performance for the following operations: Read, write, re-read, re-write, read backwards, read strided, fread, fwrite, random read, pread ,mmap, aio_read, aio_write. It has recently added tests for NFS, CIFS, and distributed/cluster systems.
