No enough data to complete minimum assessment in IO Margin Report meaning

Dear Intel experts

We got the IO Margin tool result for SATA SSD with some Intel platfrom.

I found that there's a statement

"No enough data to complete minimum assessment. # Systems: 1, Repetitions: 5" highlighted in red in the report.

How should I interpret this?

Does it mean I need to run the test with more # systems to have the IO margin tool judge the result as pass or fail?

Since I did not see any pass, fail or warning noted in the result as usually seen in the IOMT report.

Notice that it is an Intel ICE lake based server.

Dear Simpson_C,


Thank you for reaching out to us regarding the IO Margin tool results for your SATA SSD on an Intel platform. I understand that you have come across a statement in the report stating, "No enough data to complete minimum assessment. # Systems: 1, Repetitions: 5," highlighted in red, and you would like clarification on its interpretation.


This statement indicates that during the testing process, the IO Margin tool did not have sufficient data to make a definitive assessment of the performance of your SATA SSD. The "# Systems: 1, Repetitions: 5" part of the statement provides information about the testing conditions. In this case, the tool was run on a single system for a total of five repetitions.


In order to interpret this statement accurately, it is important to consider the purpose of the IO Margin tool. The tool is designed to assess the performance and reliability of storage devices under various conditions. It analyses the data transfer capabilities of the SSD and provides pass, fail, or warning indications based on predetermined criteria.


In your specific case, since the tool did not have enough data to complete the minimum assessment, it did not provide a pass, fail, or warning result. This could be due to several factors, such as insufficient testing repetitions or a lack of diverse system configurations. It does not necessarily mean that the test failed; rather, it indicates that the tool could not draw a conclusive judgement based on the available data.


To address this situation, you could consider running the test with a larger number of systems and repetitions. This will help ensure a more comprehensive assessment of the SSD's performance. By increasing the sample size and diversifying the testing conditions, you can gather more data points for the IO Margin tool to evaluate, providing a more accurate assessment of the SSD's capabilities.


I hope this explanation clarifies your concerns. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.


Best regards,

Allan

Hi Allan

Thanks for prompt response.

I'm trying to get  results with a larger number of systems and repetitions at this moment.

So I can't give you futher feedback until I get these.

Is it ok to continue the discussion on this thread after I get the result ?

Or should I open another thread ?

Hi Allan

Thanks for your attention on this thread first.

I have to say that current we don't own have this icalake based platform at hand. It's located in one of our customer site.

So I still need some more time to get further result to reply to you.

I think we can just have this thread close and I'll post the result after I can do more iteration on IOMT.

BRs

Simpson
