Application-Level Benchmarking with SPEC SFS 2014

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A technical deep-dive into the four SPEC SFS 2014 workloads at different levels of the storage stack, and how client performance and configuration can affect benchmark results. Multiple storage protocols will be addressed, including NFS, SMB, and FC – yes, you CAN test a block storage array with a file-level benchmark!

Learning Objectives

Deep analysis of storage solution performance
Effects of protocol and operating system on storage performance measurement
Observe workload changes as traffic flows from client through storage to disk
