If you have been running applications on Windows computers for some time, you will realize that most applications developers set a minimum performance requirement. So, how do you know if your computer has enough resources to run such programs? It is by performing tests on your system to discover the various performance metrics of the machine. This application presents the user with the right tools to analyze and document computer performance.
First off, it is essential to understand that this program does not have a graphical user interface because it is a command-line tool. However, running the command with a “-h” switch gives the user access to the various command augments. The program works by analyzing the filesystem benchmarking to determine the performance of the computer. Some of the operations that the application supports include write, read, read backward, re-read, re-write, fread, fwrite, pread, nmap, aio, strided, and many other performance assessment benchmarks.
It is an excellent app for the analysis of computer performance.
