PostMark

This is a test of NetApp's PostMark benchmark designed to simulate small-file testing similar to the tasks endured by web and mail servers. This test profile will set PostMark to perform 25,000 transactions with 500 files simultaneously with the file sizes ranging between 5 and 512 kilobytes.

This utility test profile is maintained by Michael Larabel. This OpenBenchmarking.org test profile was created on 6 December 2010 and last updated on 8 February 2020. To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark postmark.

This test has an average install time of 5 seconds and an average run-time of 8 minutes, 46 seconds.

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 13,996 public samples since 23 January 2013 with the latest data as of 29 October 2020.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

More details about Post mark test

I understood that Post Mark test is used to simulate file testing similar to servers, but can anyone please tell what does the test makes the machine to do with the 25000 transactions of 512 KB files.
