Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Flexible IO Tester - Type: Sequential Read - IO Engine: Linux AIO - Buffered: Yes - Direct: No - Block Size: 4KB - Disk Target: Default Test Directory) has an average run-time of 2 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
