NAME

       lat_fs - measure file system create/delete performance

SYNOPSIS

       lat_fs [ dir ]

DESCRIPTION

       lat_fs is a program that creates a number of small files in the current
       working directory and then removes the files.  Both  the  creation  and
       removal of the files is timed.

OPTIONS

       If  dir is specified, lat_fs will change to that directory first and do
       the creates and deletes there.  Otherwise the creates and  deletes  are
       done in $PWD.

OUTPUT

       The  results  are in terms of creates per second and deletes per second
       as a function of file size.  The output is in 4 column form and is  the
       size of the file, the number created, the creations per second, and the
       removals per second.  Output format looks like:

       0k      500     1304    2740
       1k      500     904     1663
       4k      500     861     1647
       10k     500     674     1516
