DRAFT GoBonnieGo: A Simple Golang-based Filesystem Benchmark Program

Traditional single-threaded filesystem benchmark programs may underreport results when a slower processor is matched with a fast Solid State Disk (SSD), for increases in single-threaded processor performance have not kept pace with the advent of fast SSDs. In this blog post we present GoBonnieGo, a multi-threaded Golang-based filesystem benchmark program.

Are Filesystem Benchmarks Important?

When measuring the speed of our newest disk, the Samsung 960 Pro (2TB) NVMe SSD, we were surprised to discover that it was xxxx slower than our [Crucial MX300 (1TB)]()

Tech notes

What’s the difference between filesystem benchmarks and disk benchmarks?

Filesystem benchmarks generally report slower speeds than disk benchmarks. filesystem
