Latest Nexenta Testing Results

So I have been running my new Nexentastor CE storage for a little more than a month now and wanted to run another IO test real quick as a sanity check. So I setup the VMware IO Analyzer again, but changed the virtual disk size to 150GB and ran the test for 600 secs this time. I ran the same iSCSI tests as I ran here to get an idea of the results I was getting from my older setup. Compare to iSCSI – SSD.

Here are the results.

OLTP 4K (4K 70% Read 100% Random) – iSCSI

08-18-24 08-18-39

 

SQL – 64k (64k 66% Read 100% Random) – iSCSI

08-20-12

08-20-24

 

Exchange 2007 (8k 55% Read 80% Random) – iSCSI

08-22-17 08-22-27

 

Webserver (8k 95% Read 75% Random) – iSCSI

08-23-56

**Update 05/15/2013**

Updating with NFS results. The same IOMeter tests were done as setup at the beginning of this post. This time I tested the NFS performance instead of iSCSI. Again as the test I performed a while back iSCSI outperformed NFS again.

So here are the results.

OLTP 4K (4K 70% Read 100% Random) – NFS

12-53-49 12-54-00

SQL – 64k (64k 66% Read 100% Random) – NFS

12-55-43 12-55-57

 

Exchange 2007 (8k 55% Read 80% Random) – NFS

12-58-07 12-58-20

 

Webserver (8k 95% Read 75% Random) – NFS

12-59-37 12-59-48

So it looks like I have confirmed that I am definitely getting much better results on my new build. :) Money well spent!

Enjoy!
