1 Hi,
2 I saw your article on IBM’s web site. I was wondering if you could
3 suggest a good way to exercise a storage subsystem under linux – that
4 is, a program sorta like bonnie, but which actually generates data
5 patterns and checks them and is designed to keep large, high-performance
6 external RAID systems pumping as fast as possible. I guess I am looking
7 for an all-inclusive stress test which checks the cpu, the pci bus, the
8 driver code, the hba, the cable, the RAID controller, the disk drives
9 plus their cooling and power supplies. Any pointers would be
10 appreciated!
11 Cheers,
12 Gary Watson
