Hi Chris,

A couple of things: looks like you're primarily testing the SSD if you're running on the localhost,
right? The 10GBe shouldn't matter in this case.

The performance will depend a lot on the record sizes you are using. To get a ballpark number
if would help to know the SSD type, would you be willing to share it? We can take it from
