Lustre is a scalable, distributed file system, which is popular in the field of high-performance computing. Recently, the advent of SSD has enabled high-performance storage hardware, but software development requires further improvement. In this paper, we analyzed performance of the Lustre system using SSD via extensive experimentation. We compared performance of Lustre on SSDs and HDDs in terms of file read/write throughputs and metadata access latencies. Our experimental results showed that 1) SSDs improve metadata access performance due to fast random read/write access of SSD characteristics, and 2) SSD are benefited to a greater extent under multiple threads and large numbers of small sized files.
