Random Mixed Data Sweep

This test starts with 100 percent random reads and progresses to 100 percent writes in 10 percent increments. Most of the contenders begin with nearly identical random read performance at a queue depth of one. It's the other end of the scale where we see large differences. The W5000 lands at the bottom of the pack when we look at 100 percent 4KB writes.
