Gameplay in F1 2011 is interestingly similar to our last set of games, where a majority of operations are sequential writes. The I/O pattern is more similar to Crysis 2 than WoW, as there's little variety in F1 2011's file structure. Almost half of the disk accesses occur at a queue depth of two. Compare this to Crysis 2, where a majority of disk accesses are evenly distributed between queue depths of two and eight.

I/O Trends:

  • 91% of all operations are 128 KB in transfer size
  • 98% of all operations are sequential
  • 50% of all operations occur at a queue depth of one
  • 44% of all operations occur at a queue depth of two
