using Microsoft diskspd


Has anyone got any experience of using the Microsoft diskspd utility to test the storage infrastructure in Healthshare/Ensemble environment.

I am interested in getting some figures to highlight any issues with different approaches to provisioning the disks on our new environment.

I am at a loss as to what parameters I should use to give a reasonable synthetic load that will give me any indication of potential issues. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards,

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your post.  We provide a storage performance utility called RANREAD.  This will actually use HealthShare/Ensemble (also Caché and InterSystems IRIS) to generate the workload rather than relying on an external tool to trying to simulate what HealthShare/Ensemble might be.  You can find the details here in this community article here

Kind regards,
