Parkdale::Measure read and write speed
Get the read and write speed from your harddisks, cdrom devices and network servers in Kilobyte, Megabyte or even Gigabyte per Second. There are three different modes, from easy to advanded.
Single click speed test using the filesystem. This test shows you the sequential read & write access speed and the random access speed using 4KB blocks and 32 concurrent threads.
The test data is read from / written onto the disk sectors directly without using the filesystem. A graph shows the transfer rate over time.
You can adjust the used blocksize to access the disk. This will affect greatly the transfer speed.
Several commandline options are available. All options are shown if the program is started with '-?'.
