Performance in Intel IOMeter File Server & Web Server Petterns
Now we’ve got a couple of server patterns for our drives and interfaces.
The overall performance rating is calculated as the arithmetic mean under all five workloads. As we might have expected, the Maxtor 5A300J0 with the Ultra ATA interface wins the test. The OneTouch drive is the second with the FireWire interface and third with USB 2.0. As you see, the gaps between the places are wide enough.
We calculate performance ratings for the Web Server patterns in the same exactly way as in the File Server one. Again, the Maxtor 5A300J0 is the winner; and again, FireWire is preferable to USB 2.0 with respect to the external Maxtor B14D300 drive.
