Vdbench file system testing WITHOUT using 'format=yes'
By Henk Vandenbergh on Apr 22, 2010
Just found a bug in Vdbench 5.02 around file system testing.
When not having Vdbench create all the files using the 'format=yes' parameter, but instead coding fileselect=sequential,fileio=sequential,operation=write in the File system Workload Definition (FWD) to simulate the format, Vdbench only creates the first 'threads=n' files and then overwrites them again and again. If you are in desperate need for a fix, let me know.
