Linux 5.6 I/O Scheduler Benchmarks: None, Kyber, BFQ, MQ-Deadline
Written by Michael Larabel in Storage on 7 April 2020. Page 4 of 4. 19 Comments

Apache HBase generally performed the best with not using an I/O scheduler on the fast solid-state storage.

But Kyber still had a strong showing in some instances.

Overall though, using "none" as your I/O scheduler option will still generally offer the best performance for speedy NVMe SSD storage with a few exceptions. Similar tests on SATA HDD/SSDs off Linux 5.6 coming up shortly on Phoronix.
