Description : ITP: fs_mark - benchmark for simulating synchronous write workloads
The fs_mark benchmark tests synchronous write workloads. It can vary
the number of files, directory depth, etc. It has detailed timings for
reads, writes, unlinks and fsyncs that make it good for simulating mail
servers and other setups.
(taken from upstream webpage.)
I intend to maintain it as project of collabmaint on Alioth via Git.
I intend to have my co-worker Sebastian 'tokkee' Harl <email@example.com> as
sponsor for reviewing and uploading the package.
The fs_mark benchmark is popular among kernel developers for measuring
metadata performance, see for example:
[3.2-rc7] slowdown, warning + oops creating lots of files
I like to maintain the package to have the tool at hand for my
Linux Performance analysis & tuning trainings.
