Thank you for the reply,
Yes, I have mounted the Optane modules as an ext4 filesystem; a quick FIO test is able to achieve > 1 MIOPs.
My thought was that it would be network related, however I've ran some MPI benchmarks and the scores line-up with EDR Infiniband.
Also, the 12.4 GB/s speed we get in the FIO Seq Read test shows we can get better than local-only performance.
The documentation mentions daos_test and daos_perf, are these still supported?
