Engineering innovations from STB have always lead the storage test industry. That tradition of technical leadership continues with the introduction of the powerful new access algorithm, Cyclic Permutation Access Method or CPAM for short. CPAM produces an evenly distributed random LBA access pattern while guaranteeing that each LBA will be accessed once and only once.
Other random access methods miss entire block ranges, repeat some LBAs while never hitting others, no matter how long they are run. CPAM overcomes all of those shortcomings.
CPAM's evenly distributed yet random access pattern will hit every LBA once and only once in a single full-drive pass.
CPAM produces the physical and queue system stress of true random access, while guaranteeing that every LBA is tested in the shortest amount of time.
CPAM is available in version 8.4 of the STB Suite Disk Manufacturing Module (DMM) and the Developers Toolbox (DTB) API.
