Following are the commands. Page cache is flushed before next iteration. Original numbers shared were average of almost 10 iterations.

LMDD:
	100MB file read/write:
		write:
			lmdd if=internal of=/data/datafile bs=128k count=800 flush=1 sync=1
		read:
			lmdd if=/data/datafile of=internal bs=128k flush=1 sync=1

IOZONE:
	100MB file read/write:
		Write:
			iozone -i0 -s100m -r128k -e -w -f /data/datafile -U /data/
		Read:
			iozone -i1 -s100m -r128k -e -f /data/datafile -U /data/

Subhash
