Flexible File System Benchmark – FFSB

Dominique Heger is designing an MPI extension for the Flexible File Systems Benchmark (FFSB). The extension will allow FFSB to be utilized in cluster and GRID environments. FFSB reflects a cross-platform filesystem performance measurement and stress-testing tool that allows quantifying IO performance based on actual workload profiles that mimic production environments. Dominique Heger designed FFSB V1 back in 2000, and over the years, Josh Jacobs (MIT), Sonny Rao (IBM), and Jose Santos (IBM) have made substantial contributions in regards to the design, scalability, development, and functionality of FFSB.
