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
