Hi All,



SSD device is INTEL SSDSA2CT040G3.


The test commad i use on target board:

echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor


Write test command:

dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile bs=1M count=1024 conv=fsync


Read test command:

dd if=tempfile of=/dev/null bs=1M count=1024


Test Result: (Rootfs is buildroot)

linux 3.14.52:


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 26.856296 seconds, 38.1MB/s


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 13.097736 seconds, 78.2MB/s


linux 3.10.53:


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 28.990223 seconds, 35.3MB/s


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 8.182314 seconds, 125.1MB/s


linux 3.0.35:


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 36.756555 seconds, 27.9MB/s


1073741824 bytes (1.0GB) copied, 10.264888 seconds, 99.8MB/s


As you see, the read speed is 30% worse in linux 3.14.52 then linux 3.10.53.

Any idea ?


Is Any patch code for SATA performance improve ?
