IO meter, results vary per website since everybody configures this test differently. We brought the ancient application back into rotation as it remains the best application to really stress the random IO performance amongst others for storage devices.
Iometer is a workload creator, it will literally perform massive I/O operations in order to stress the system. To measure random I/O response time as well as total I/O's per second, Iometer is set to use 4KB file size chunks and will completely trash the SSD with random 4KB files, massively stressing the random IO.
We apply a 4KB Random IO read and write stress test which became a standard, we leave it running for a while and then note down the average IOPS score in operations per second. Above, an (example) screenshot.
Above, the results - that's aligned Random IO 4KB READ/WRITE performance. This SSD is average to good with high IO loads.
