+Run a simple sequential I/O benchmark on the specified image. If @code{-w} is
+specified, a write test is performed, otherwise a read test is performed.
+A total number of @var{count} I/O requests is performed, each @var{buffer_size}
+bytes in size, and with @var{depth} requests in parallel.
If @code{-n} is specified, the native AIO backend is used if possible. On
Linux, this option only works if @code{-t none} or @code{-t directsync} is
specified as well.
+For write tests, by default a buffer filled with zeros is written. This can be
+overridden with a pattern byte specified by @var{pattern}.
