Using Sysbench to benchmark non-system-drive on antiX

I have a thin client with a 32 GB USB flash drive and a 512 MB IDE "disk on module" (DOM).

I successfully used the following command for the Sysbench program which I think tested just the 32 GB USB flash drive. As you can see, the result is miserably slow even though the flash drive is capable of write speeds of ~15 MB/S and connected to a USB 2.0 port.

I was hoping I would be able to test the 512 MB IDE DOM to see if that's much faster.

I'm using antiX 16.2

Code: Select all

$ sysbench --test=fileio --file-total-size=1G prepare
sysbench 0.4.12:  multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

128 files, 8192Kb each, 1024Mb total
Creating files for the test...

$ sysbench --test=fileio --file-total-size=1G --file-test-mode=rndrw --max-time=1200 --max-requests=0 run
sysbench 0.4.12:  multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

Running the test with following options:
Number of threads: 1

Extra file open flags: 0
128 files, 8Mb each
1Gb total file size
Block size 16Kb
Number of random requests for random IO: 0
Read/Write ratio for combined random IO test: 1.50
Periodic FSYNC enabled, calling fsync() each 100 requests.
Calling fsync() at the end of test, Enabled.
Using synchronous I/O mode
Doing random r/w test
Threads started!
Time limit exceeded, exiting...
Done.

Operations performed:  9300 Read, 6200 Write, 19755 Other = 35255 Total
Read 145.31Mb  Written 96.875Mb  Total transferred 242.19Mb  (206.61Kb/sec)
   12.91 Requests/sec executed

Test execution summary:
    total time:                          1200.3076s
    total number of events:              15500
    total time taken by event execution: 91.6960
    per-request statistics:
         min:                                  0.08ms

         max:                                930.95ms
         approx.  95 percentile:              18.77ms

Threads fairness:
    events (avg/stddev):           15500.0000/0.00
    execution time (avg/stddev):   91.6960/0.00

Have you put this to the Antix forum?

No but I think they're getting fed up of me over there and this seems like something that would be the same for both distributions.
