I've always used iozone to much satisfaction.  Just make sure your file
sizes are larger than your caching.  The automatic options will reveal
with the real boundaries are to your caching and then you can perform
custom tests from there.  Keep in mind to get good, relevant results,
you're looking at very large files that'll take awhile to complete.
