This Advanced Disk Test, which is part of PerformanceTest, measures the data transfer speed when reading or writing data to one or more disks. The speed that data can be transferred between memory and a hard disk drive is one of a system's most important performance aspects. There are quite a few factors which have a bearing on this speed and the Advanced Disk Drive Test allows the user to vary most of these factors and compare the results.
The test supports any drive that can be mounted under Windows. Including IDE drives, SCSI, RAID, USB key drives, SATA, networked shared drives and external drives.
Users have the ability to test multiple drives at the same time using multiple threads, and specify:
The results of all completed tests may be graphed using our custom graphing components.
The PassMark Disk Performance test measures the data transfer speed when reading or writing data to specific Drive.
Users have the ability to select the disk drive for testing, file size, the units of measurement, test duration, sample frequency and test iterations. When selecting Run All, the test will run through a series of ten preset tests. Results and associated graphs to be exported as HTML.
