@unikum - yeah, but need to use iozone not hdparm...
EDIT: I started a new thread so as not to contaminate this one with technical aspects of iozone. Feel free to join the discussion, see results of the three schedulers, etc.
nice, i had thought about opening a new thread too, at one point but it obviously slipped my mind when posting.
i'm going to get iozone's extra stuff like the 3dplot running later today ~ i just have a few things to do first.
Maybe it's possible to see a bigger difference using a mechanical disk. So what are the conclusions here?
That noop leaves the disk to schedule its IO. cfq and deadline offset IO scheduling to the CPU.

I do not think this thread is still viable. It is more than two years old and much has changed in the kernel over that time.
