Model-based file system workload generator
Filebench is quick to set up and use unlike many of the commercial benchmarks which it can emulate. It is also a handy tool for micro-benchmarking storage subsystems and studying the relationships of complex applications such as relational databases with their storage without having to incur the costs of setting up those applications, loading data and so forth.
Filebench uses loadable workload personalities in a common framework to allow easy emulation of complex applications upon file systems. The workload personalities use a Workload Definition Language to define the workload’s model.
