[Fedora] HDD Benchmark with hdparm

To do a simple reading benchmark of Hdd, we can use hdparm. It may not install by default but we can easily get it by yum install hdparm.

After install, run hdparm -t -T /dev/sda (sdb, sdc, etc) and we can then see Cache Read and Buffered Disk Read speed.

My laptop has pretty poor performance with only 58.3MB/s for buffered disk reads, running on WD Scropio Blue 320GB.
