In this section, we will focus on the various utilities that can assist us in benchmarking disk and network performance of VMs.
Iometer is a tool collection for running detailed I/O benchmarks. It is capable of reproducing I/O access characteristics of various applications. The tool consists of a management software that controls and evaluates the particular tests and Dynamo, an executable that run tests in multiple threads on a host.
Dynamo is supported on both Windows and Linux for the x86 or x64 architecture. The graphical management software is only available on Windows. For benchmarking Linux systems, a Windows host is required to manage the benchmark.
