Please note that NFSSTONE has now been replaced by nhfsstone.

NFSSTONE is a benchmark aimed at network file systems. The file system being benchmarked is tested independent of the underlying network configuration and protocols, this allows a variety of file systems and network combinations to be benchmarks with a single product.

The results that NFSSTONE reports are based on clients requesting a number of file operation and recording the time that is took to complete all the benchmark operations. The results are an independent value called NFSSTONEs.


NFSSTONEs are the total number of file operations that are performed by the benchmark. These operations are tuneable and compile time through #define values in the source. The main factors for NFSSTONE are the total number of directories for a single run TOT_DIRS and the files per directory FILES_PER_DIR.
