Here is a repeat of a post I made back in November 2005 - in case anyone
is having trouble getting it to work on Windows.  I haven't checked
lately, but at the time, it wasn't clearly documented.  In retrospect,
maybe it should have been more obvious to me that I had to specify a
datafile, but it wasn't obvious at the time:

In case anyone else wants to use ORION on Windows, I finally figured out
how to get it to work.  Apparently you have to specify an actual Oracle
datafile, not just a directory or empty text file.  I put
"C:\oracle\oradata\orcl\example01.dbf" in my mytest.lun file, and then
ORION worked, giving me the following command-line output:
 
C:\Program Files\Oracle\Orion>orion -run simple -testname mytest
-num_disks 1
ORION: ORacle IO Numbers -- Version 10.2.0.1.0
Test will take approximately 9 minutes
Larger caches may take longer
 
 
And the following results in mytest_summary.txt:
 
ORION VERSION 10.2.0.1.0
 
Commandline:
-run simple -testname mytest -num_disks 1 
 
This maps to this test:
Test: mytest
Small IO size: 8 KB
Large IO size: 1024 KB
IO Types: Small Random IOs, Large Random IOs
Simulated Array Type: CONCAT
Write: 0%
Cache Size: Not Entered
Duration for each Data Point: 60 seconds
Small Columns:,      0
Large Columns:,      0,      1,      2
Total Data Points: 8
 
Name: C:\oracle\oradata\orcl\example01.dbf Size: 157294592
1 FILEs found.
 
Maximum Large MBPS=9.01 @ Small=0 and Large=2
Maximum Small IOPS=52 @ Small=2 and Large=0
Minimum Small Latency=20.45 @ Small=1 and Large=0

        Ladies and gentlemen,
        
        Did any of you had used the Orion (oracle I/O calibration tool)?
        I would be thankful if  you could share your experience
(offline/online). 
        
        Regards.
