Happiness is … a JR4 tearing through an octobonnie …

This is a very stressful benchmark for a server. A single bonnie++ run can generate user loads of 3-5 depending upon system configuration. And bonnie++ wants … no … insists on using 2x ram per run.

So even if you run 8 at a time … and have, lets say … I dunno … 128 GB ram … 2x RAM is 256GB. 8 of these is about 2TB of space.

Sure enough …

[root@jr4 ~]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc3              58G  6.1G   49G  11% /
/dev/sdc1             418M   28M  369M   7% /boot
tmpfs                  56G     0   56G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/md0               17T  2.3T   15T  14% /data

And 8 going at once has driven the user load to about 18 and change. vmstat shows about 18 IO’s typically blocked. Most of the ram is in use …

This is a brutal test. I am enjoying watching it.
