If your application doesn’t need atime or diratime (timestamp when a file or directory was last read), using the noatime and nodiratime mount options will reduce the number of writes to your filesystem.
Example mount command with noatime and nodiratime:
/dev/random or /dev/urandom can sometimes become the bottleneck during the filesystem performance testing. We recommend pre-generating the random data in /tmp and copy them to your filesystem for an accurate measurement.
