Drive: 4TB Samsung 870 EVO
File System: ext4

The drive is being used within QNAP QTS. Running a "Performance Test" i get IOPS Read: 5953 (Sequential Read: 528MB/s). Keep in mind the drive is almost full. I recently picked up a second 4TB Samsung 870 EVO. Added it to the NAS (it is in a linear raid with the first) then performed a separate test on the drive -- IOPS Read: 99691 (Sequential Read: 539.83 MB/s). The NAS uses SATA3 for all bays.

Why is the one drive way down at 5953? Is this the result of a nearly full drive even though i'm only performing an IOPS read. The drives are not being accessed at this time.

So you are saying running an IOPS Read requires free disk space (greater than my existing 13 GB) ? Please explain the logic.
Please describe how this is configured.
'linear RAID'?

But yes...13GB free space on a 4TB drive is Too Full.

Which specific Performance Test in QTS?
I havd a TS-453sa and the system drive is a 480GB Seagate Ironwolf Pro SSD.
