[ ... ]Most such tools are not very good, and anyhow it seems really difficult for most people who do storage performance testing to use them properly, as many "benchmarks" I see are mostly meaningless. However, used properly, FIO and Bonnie 1.4 can return useful results. For various reasons tools like Bonnie++ and IOzone are of dubious value.
