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.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark postmark.

Disk Transaction Performance

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 14,337 public results since 23 January 2013 with the latest data as of 16 January 2021.

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.
