nfstest_io — I/O tool

Synopsis

nfstest_io -d <datadir> [options]

Description

This I/O tool is used to create and manipulate files of different types. The arguments allow running for a specified period of time as well as running multiple processes. Each process modifies a single file at a time and the file name space is different for each process so there are no collisions between two different processes modifying the same file.
