The Linux SCSI Target Wiki
Goals and features
The data path code lives in the kernel and concerns itself only with moving data. The best performance on any given platform is the major requirement for Open-iSCSI project.
Reasonable performance numbers are (single connection, 10 GbE network, 2.4Ghz dual Opteron, UNH or IET targets):
- Single iSCSI session
- 450MB/s Read and 450 MB/s Write for 64KB block
- 510 MB/s Read and 550 MB/s Write for 256KB block
- 65,000 IOPS - 1K, 58,000 IOPS - 2K, 50,000 IOPS with 4KB Read
- Two iSCSI sessions
- 550 MB/s Read and 810 MB/s Write for 256KB block
- 75,000 IOPS for 1K block
