Thanks Brandon- I was completely unaware that you could do that !! This is very helpful info.

Orion does support filesystems and has done so for years. All you have to do is create a file that is a multiple of the block size you'll be testing, e.g.:  

Create a 4GB file:  

dd if=/dev/zero of=/u01/oracle/mytest.dbf bs=8k count=524288  

Then, put this file in your test.lun file:  

>cat mytest.lun


Then, run orion:  

orion -run simple -testname mytest -num_disks 1

I just wish Orion would support filesystems rather than raw devices-
