I used ramdisk as the backend storage.

I am using kvm tool instead qemu. He wasn't satisfied the poor
sequential performance. I removed the plug and unplug operation and bio
completion batching. You can grab Michan's patch and make a diff to see
the details.

Here is the fio's config file.

[global]
exec_prerun="echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches"
group_reporting
norandommap
ioscheduler=noop
thread
bs=512
size=4MB
direct=1
filename=/dev/vdb
numjobs=256
ioengine=aio
iodepth=64
loops=3
[seq-read]
stonewall
rw=read

[seq-write]
stonewall
rw=write

[rnd-read]
stonewall
rw=randread

[rnd-write]
stonewall
rw=randwrite
