  1. A utility for testing the performance of a wireless or wired network that sends TCP and UDP data streams and computes important metrics: upstream and downstream throughput values, packet loss, and round-trip time, etc. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connections.
  2. NetIO-GUI is a Windows frontend for the multiplatform commandline utility 'netio'. It measures ICMP respond times and network transfer rates for different packet sizes and protocols. All results are stored in a SQLite database file and can easily be compared.


  3. I want to know how fast are my disks really are, in a real life situations. Not in a synthetic benchmarking program that will display figures that I will never be able to meet.

  7. Computer diagnostics, hardware monitoring, network audit, and benchmarking.
  8. CCSIO Benchmark measures maximum sequential read/write speed that is realistically achievable for a given file system location, including local drives, remote network shares, virtual/pseudo devices such as RAM disks and encrypted file containers.
  9. Super PI is a single threaded benchmark that calculates pi to a specific number of digits. It uses the Gauss-Legendre algorithm and is a Windows port of a program used by Yasumasa Kanada in 1995 to compute pi to 232 digits.
