I used Intel’s Iometer disk testing suite to measure the S316’s I/Os per second and maximum throughput rates, using a variety of block sizes. I also copied files to and from the S316 over the GbE connection to provide a real-world test, and copied files from one volume to another to get a feel for maximum transfer rates. The I/O per second and transfer rates compare favorably with even high-end SCSI RAID server adapters, a coup for both Pogo Linux and SATA storage.
