Linux Filesystem Testing Tools

Bonnie  Bonnie++ is test suite, which performs several hard drive/ filesystem tests.   
dbench  Filesystem benchmark that generates good filesystem load   
fs_inode  Part of the LTP: This test creates several subdirectories and files off of two parent directories and removes directories and files as part of the test.   
fs_maim  Part of the LTP: a set of scripts to test and stress filesystem and storage management utilities   
IOZone  Filesystem benchmark tool (read, write, re-read, re-write, read backwards, read strided, fread, fwrite, random read, pread, aio_read, aio_write)   
lftest  Part of the LTP:lftest is a tool/test designed to create large files and lseek from the beginning of the file to the end of the file after each block write. This test verifies large file support and can be used to generate large files for other filesystem tests.  Files up to 2Tb have been created using this tool. This test is VERY picky about glibc version. 
LTP  The Linux Test Project is a collection of tools for testing the Linux kernel and related features.   
PostMark  Filesystem benchmark that simulates load generated by enterprise applications such as email, news and web-based commerce.   
stress  puts the system under a specified amount of load   
mongo  set of the programs to test linux filesystems for performance and functionality   
fsx  File system exerciser from Apple.  The test is most effective if you let it run for a minute or two, so that it overlaps the periodic sync that most Unix systems do. 
xdd Storage I/O Performance Characterization tool that runs on most UNIX-like systems and Windows. Has been around since 1992 and is in use at various government labs.

Nice list...IoZone is very detailed in its can even create spread sheet regarding the test results(along with graphs) by exporting csv's through the tool the tool
