Benchmark a File System in FreeBSD PDF
Thursday, 06 October 2011
To benchmark a file system in FreeBSD we use bonnie++:

  cd /usr/ports/benchmarks/bonnie++
  make install clean ; rehash

Then we run bonnie++:

  bonnie++ -u 0:0 -d /usr -s 1000

Size defined with parameter -s is in MBytes. For proper results file size must be at least double of RAM. Adjust this parameter accordingly.
There's also bonnie available for benchmark in FreeBSD's ports system.
