[K12OSN] Testing iSCSI performance

I have setup a little test network with two machines connected together with iSCSI on gigabit 
ethernet. I'd like to test the filesystem performance, the iSCSI target is an OpenFiler box & the 
client / initiator is a Centos 5.3 machine with the iSCSI mounted as ext3.

Has anyone got any recommendation for testing software or has anyone played around with this sort of 

I've looked at Iozone and it looks very good but a little too complicated for me at the moment at 
this early stage.
