PCPer File Copy Test
Our custom PCPer-FC test does some fairly simple file creation and copy routines in order to test the storage system for speed. The script creates a set of files of varying sizes, times the creation process, then copies the same files to another partition on the same hard drive and times the copy process as well. There are four file patterns that we used to try and find any strong or weak points in the hardware: 10 files @ 1000 MB each, 100 files @ 100 MB each, 500 files @ 10 MB each and 1000 files at 1 MB each.
Our file creation and copy tests highlight some of the differences between SF behavior when running in Sync (Vertex 3) vs. Async (Agility 3) modes. Remember that these are test completion times - lower is better, meaning Agility 3 *beat* Vertex 3 in a fair chunk of these tests (but not all).
