I currently use following, but perhaps defaults do not effectively simulate Bitcoin Core initial block download workload.

$ sysbench fileio --file-total-size=8G prepare

$ sysbench fileio --file-total-size=8G --file-test-mode=rndrw run
$ sysbench fileio --file-total-size=8G cleanup

Thanks for helping out!
