How does EV 9 write to disk: sequentially, random or both?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

From a disk I/O perspective how does EV 9 write to disks? I believe logs are written sequentially, but is vault data written sequentially or random?

Can I configure how EV writes to disk or is it hard-coded during setup? Is this even an EV question?

Thank you

Honestly I'm not entirely sure, I don't believe its sequential, one thing I do know is that there is no way to configure it

It's probably a mixture of both. I guess the saveset files are written sequentially each when you just have 1 storage thread. But as it is a multithreaded application, it writes many files in parallel, so in effect the drives have to do seeks in between and you're more on a random pattern then for the drives.

Just a thought.
