Towards Scalable Benchmarks for Mass Storage Systems

  title={Towards Scalable Benchmarks for Mass Storage Systems},
  author={Ethan L. Miller},
While mass storage systems have been used for several decades to store large quantities of scientific data, there has been little work on devising standard ways of measuring them. Each system is hand-tuned using parameters that seem to work best, but it is difficult to gauge the potential effect of similar changes on other systems. The proliferation of storage management software and policies has made it difficult for users to make the best choices for their own systems. The introduction of… CONTINUE READING
