Drvperf is a console utility to measure various characteristics of mass storage devices and mass storage subsystem as a whole in Linux environment. It is supplementary to the article Storage subsystem performance: analysis and recipes, 2016.

It includes following common and exotic tests:

  • sequential access performance [MB/s]
  • random access performance [IOPS, ms]
  • (SSD/RAID) determine optimal concurrency factor
  • (HDD) determine empirically fullstroke seek time [ms] and rotationl speed [RPM]
  • (HDD) determine empirically track-to-track seek time [ms] and rotational speed [RPM]

Full description is provided by manual page: $ man -l drvperf.1

Build steps:

$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..
$ make
$ ./drvperf --help
