Using SLOB to Test Physical I/O

slob ghostFor some time now I’ve been using the Silly Little Oracle Benchmark (SLOB) tool to drive physical I/O against the various high performance flash memory arrays I have in my lab (one of the benefits of working for Violin Memory is a lab stuffed with flash arrays!)

I wrote a number of little scripts and tools to automate this process and always intended to publish some of them to the community. However, time flies and I never seem to get around to finishing them off or making them presentable. I’ve come to the conclusion now that this will probably never happen, so I’ve published them in all their nasty, badly-written and uncommented glory. I can only apologise in advance.

You can find them here.
