Installing Fio on CentOS 6.4 (minimal)

One of the very first things I am usually doing before I in-depthly set up a new server is testing its I/O Performance. As I am usually starting off from a Minimal install of a CentOS Release, here are the steps to install fio – the Flexible I/O benchmark program.

First, install prerequisites (of course, as root):

1
yum install libaio* gcc wget make

Then, get the current fio sources (as time of writing, the current version was 2.0.14)

1
wget http://brick.kernel.dk/snaps/fio-2.0.14.tar.gz

and unzip / configure them:

1

6
gunzip fio-2.0.14.tar.gz
tar -xf fio-2.0.14.tar
cd fio-2.0.14
./configure
make
make install
