ATTO Disk Benchmark
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
CrystalDiskMark is designed to quickly test the performance of your hard drives. Currently, the program allows to measure sequential and random read/write speeds. (Please note that the reason behind the “low” write speed is based on two things: First is the SandForce controllers using a writing technique that compresses the data, achieving higher write performance, and the second is CystalDiskMark benchmarks with already compressed data. These are essentially write speeds that one could expect with the transfer of large compressed archives or a compressed ISO.)
