This mode can be used for below filesystem aging scenario.

Fragmenting filesystem with specified pattern:
1M chunk | 1M hole | 1M chunk | 1M hole | ...

e.g.

Before
1. create/write 10 1M files: file0 file1 file2 ... file9
2. remove file1 file3 file5 ... file9

After
mode=fragment:fixed_block
fragment_chunk_size=1M
fragment_hole_size=1M
1. create/write one 10M file

Thanks,
