The IO-500 has been developed together with the community and its development is still ongoing. The benchmark is essentially a benchmark suite bundled with execution rules. It harnesses existing and trusted open source benchmarks.
The goal for the benchmark is to capture user-experienced performance. It aims to be:
The benchmark covers various workloads and computes a single score for comparison. The workloads are:
The individual performance numbers are preserved and accessible via the web or the raw data. This allows deriving other relevant metrics.
We are in the process to establish a procedure to extend the current workload with further meaningful metrics.
We welcome the promotion of the IO-500 using the logo.
