Benchmark software for MSA 2012i

Hi,
I am looking for some good benchmark software to test two MSA 2012i. Furthermore it would be nice to have some reference data for what would be normal.

Re: Benchmark software for MSA 2012i

I've had good success with "iometer".

Ran it in a VMware ESX Windows 2003 virtual machine and was able to read more than 100 MegaBytes/seconds through the ESX software iSCSI initiator using 64KB pure-sequential I/Os. Writes still achived 60-70 MB/s. It was a 4-member SAS-disk RAID-5 set.

If you have some time, repeat the experiment with 512 Byte I/O sizes...
