  • StarWind RAM disk that is running on node2 through the SyncChannel (node1 should be client machine)
  • StarWind RAM disk that is running on node1 through the loopback
  • StarWind RAM disk that is running on node2 through the loopback
  • Basic Image target that is running on node1 through the SyncChannel (node2 should be client machine)
  • Basic Image target that is running on node2 through the SyncChannel (node1 should be client machine)
  • Basic Image without cache configured that is running on node1 through the loopback
  • Basic Image without cache configured that is running on node2 through the loopback
  • HA device without cache configured (you should run in from the VM as you previously did)

 

Every test may have following configurations:

  • 4K 100% read, 100% sequential, # of Outstanding IOPS= 16
  • 4K 100% write, 100% sequential, # of Outstanding IOPS=16
  • 64K 100% read, 100% sequential, # of Outstanding IOPS= 16
  • 64K 100% write, 100% sequential, # of Outstanding IOPS= 16
