You want to test using a file at least twice as big as your RAM,
otherwise you're just testing your cache.  You can see an example of
this on the first graph at .  Only the far right
edge shows the disks speed. shows that same image
existed back in 2000 with a modtime of 1999, so it's possible the
machine being tested had under 256MB of RAM.
