Throughput performance evaluation of 12 Intel DC P3700 NVMe SSDs on the SGI UV 300

by Nikolaos Trikoupis

Abstract: This whitepaper focuses on measuring the aggregate throughput delivered by 12 Intel DC P3700 NVMe SSDs installed on the SGI UV 300 scale-up system at the High Performance Computing Center of the City University of New York. We establish a performance baseline for a single SSD and we assemble them in a single RAID-0 volume using Linux Software Raid and the XVM Volume Manager. We measure the aggregate read and write throughput against different configurations that use the XFS and the GPFS file systems.
