Somewhat.. I have 16 physical cores on this machine btw.

These numbers seem awfully low however. Each process seems to be limited
to 7000 or so IOPS.



I was trying to test this in the local tempfs but I got an error....

Can not open temp file: iozone.tmp
open: Invalid argument

Not sure what is going on there.
