I'm trying to run some IOzone benchmarking on a new system to get a
feel for baseline performance.

Unfortunately, benchmarking with IOzone is a very poor indicator of what performance will be like during normal use. Forcing the system to behave like it is short on memory only tests how the system will behave when it is short on memory.

Testing multi-threaded synchronous writes with IOzone might actually mean something if it is representative of your work-load.
