  • All bash variables should be double quoted!

    It's a common rockie mistake to assign command line arguments ($1) to variables without double quotes.

  • Thanks Tom, much appreciated, now I've got something to play with at the weekend.

  • Looks like great tool. Too bad that is not "free" nor "opensource". If it would be "free", I would not need to provide my email address in order to download from their website.

  • Definitely test for your environment and workload.
    I would have thought that a zvol with 4k vblocks would have been the best performance for my windows 11 vm and its workload, but actually testing showed me that I was getting better small read/writes with 64k. (On my system and the workload that I was targeting)

    Can’t just assume as topology and type of hardware change your expected results
    Test test test

  • Very interesting test. Do you have a video about how to configure Netdata for visualization?

  • Great stuff Tom! Some community driven, agreed upon bench marks make debugging issues in the forum threads much easier, and more valuable for future readers.

    Suggestion: Could your script pull & grep out some system statistics at the beginning, so it's highly visible what kind of hardware configuration people are using?

  • This is a great video. I would love to see a walkthrough of how to use phoronix to compare two machines (and have the results show on the same page)
