Synology Disk Station DS210j

IOMeter is a new addition to the NAS results. It is an I/O subsystem measurement and characteristic tool for single and clustered systems initially designed by Intel.

IOMeter is both a workload generator (that is, it performs I/O operations in order to stress the system) and a measurement tool (that is, it examines and records the performance of its I/O operations and their impact on the system). It can be configured to emulate the disk or network I/O load of any program or benchmark, or can be used to generate entirely synthetic I/O loads. It can generate and measure loads on single or multiple (networked) systems.

I configured IOMeter to create a 1GB file on the target device, DS210j, and it will pull the performance of 5 minutes and report back the average transfer rate for various block size recordings. The results are 100% sequential followed by 100% random.

Much like the results from the Intel NAS Performance Tests, the performance differences between the three disk configurations were very small. For a 1GB file, the results are lower than what was reported by IOZone but not far from what would be considered overly slow or lightning fast for a NAS.

    Wrong, DS209+II has Freecsale mpc8533 PPC Processor, only DS710+ and DS1010+ have Intel Atom procs.

    Corrected in the review.
