Hard Drive Performance Benchmark / News: Recent posts

Initial hdperf hard drive performance benchmark release

The first public version of a comprehensive block-level hard drive benchmark has been released for Linux with more platform support to come later (or it may just work). A sample of the output can be seen on The aim is to be more comprehensive than other freely available benchmarks, as well as provide more easily understood output. Portability is important -- Windows XP support coming soon to a future release providing hopefully the easiest way to make apples to apples comparisons of hard drives. For safety, the current version only tests in *read-only* mode.
