Throughput of Existing Multiprocessor File Systems (An Informal Study)
David Kotz
Dartmouth PCS-TR93-190

Abstract:

Fast file systems are critical for high-performance scientific computing, since many scientific applications have tremendous I/O requirements. Many parallel supercomputers have only recently obtained fully parallel I/O architectures and file systems, which are necessary for scalable I/O performance. Scalability aside, I show here that many systems lack sufficient absolute performance. I do this by surveying the performance reported in the literature, summarized in an informal table.
