Iogen is an I/O generator.
It forks child processes that each run a mix of reads and writes.
The idea is to generate heavily fragmented files to make the hardware suffer
as much as possible. This tool has been used to test filesystems, drivers,
firmware, and hardware devices.
It is by no means meant as a performance measuring tool since it tries to
recreate the worst case scenario I/O.
