[ceph-users] Benchmark performance when using SSD as the journal

Hi Dave,

The SSD journal will help boost iops  & latency which will be more 
apparent for small block sizes. The rados benchmark default block size 
is 4M, use the -b option to specify the size. Try at 4k, 32k, 64k ...
As a side note, this is a rados level test, the rbd image size is not 
relevant here.
