Aerospike Certification Tool (ACT)

The open source Aerospike Certification Tool (ACT) for Solid State Drive (SSD) benchmarks can help you run latency tests under large write loads and increasing throughput until the point of failure.

The test is intended to evaluate performance for those evaluating flash to determine the best SSDs for their real-time big data needs.

The project is available on github, the README file describes the configuration file, and building the test requires simply executing ‘make’.

For a description of the ACT, read the blog. To see which SSDs we recommend, read our benchmark results. You can also run ACT yourself.
