Is there any way to measure performance on a FUSE-based mount that is mounted via long-running executable (no device is used, nor /etc/fstab entry added)?

There's nothing special about a FUSE mount from a benchmarking perspective - it's just a filesystem.

Use bonnie, fio, whatever you like.

I know how to get metrics on a device, but not a mountpoint. Thanks (if this works). – Dustin Oprea Jan 7 '14 at 19:18
@DustinOprea the major difference taking stats on a filesystem/mountpoint (as opposed to a raw device) is you're going through the operating system's VFS layer -- this adds some overhead as opposed to beating on a raw device, but on an otherwise-idle system it's essentially a constant amount of overhead and won't skew your results too much. – voretaq7 Jan 9 '14 at 18:05
