       fs_mark - Benchmark synchronous/async file creation


       fs_mark [OPTIONS] -d DIRECTORY [-d DIRECTORY ...]


       fs_mark is meant to give some low level bashing to file systems. The write pattern that it
       concentrates on is heavily synchronous IO across multiple directories, drives, etc.


       -h     Print usage and exit.

       -k     Keep files after each iteration.

       -F     Run until filesystem is full.

              Method to be used for synchronizing changes to disk:

              0: No Sync

              1: fsyncBeforeClose

              2: sync/1_fsync

              3: PostReverseFsync

              4: syncPostReverseFsync

              5: PostFsync

              6: syncPostFsync

              Use number subdirectories.

              Use number files in each subdirectory in round robin mode.

              Use directory. Can be specified multiple times.

              Log to logfile.

              Repeat the benchmark number of iterations.

              Use number of files per iteration.

              Use number of total bytes file names.

              Use number of random bytes in file names.

              Use number of bytes as size of each file.

              Use number of threads.

              Use number (of bytes per write() syscall.
