HD Tune Pro
HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:
- Benchmark: measures the performance
- Info: shows detailed information
- Health: checks the health status by using SMART
- Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
- Temperature display
HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
The AIC MiniBOD is more of a holder and transporter than it is a performance piece. The performance measured in the benchmarks today comes from the LSI adapter and the drives, the MiniBOD doesn't add to performance, but if the enclosure is not working correctly it could decrease performance.
Here we see that everything with the MiniBOD is working as it should be and not decreasing the expected performance of the array. The RAID 0 and RAID 5 read numbers look very good.
The write performance of the system is also very fast. Here we see RAID 0 hitting nearly 750MB/s.
