How to Read This Chapter

Many workload models are available in WorkloadWisdom, and they share many similar structures and concepts, such as Read/Write percentage and Load Properties.

This section starts by describing general workload concepts that are common to most workload models, and then subsequent subsections describe protocol specific differences where applicable.

For example, Data Content is a common workload concept that applies to all protocol workloads, but block workloads have data deduplication and design that vary from file workloads. Those protocol-specific implementations are described in the Block Protocol Workloads subsection and the File Protocol Workloads subsection, respectively. Similarly, Object Protocol Workloads have unique concepts that are different from block and file workloads.
