Photo/Image Server

Based on the File protocol workload model, the Photo/Image Server Example is designed to mimic direct access to a photo server in terms of block sizes, command ratios, and typical file sizes. There is no need to take into account access within files because most files are read/written completely rather than in portions.

This example is for a photo server that is changing quite frequently and where users are frequently searching for content rather than accessing photos directly because they are well indexed else where in a webserver or other portal. If a portal where used in front of this photo server the meta traffic would decrease dramatically. Also many photo servers do not change as frequently as this example where often photos are uploaded but never accessed.
