Custom build a benchmark to simulate your application I/O workload with filebench...
FileBench is a framework of file system workloads for measuring and comparing file system performance. The key is in the workloads.

But more importantly, you can create workloads to simulate complex applications such as a database.

I just used FileBench and its 'oltp.f' workload.
