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
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.
In sequential read across the array the LSI MegaRAID 9280-24i4e was able to deliver nearly 1200MB/s average with both RAID 0 and RAID 5. This was faster than both the Areca and HighPoint controllers.
The write performance across the array was solid and very fast. With so many high speed drives we are limited by the PCIe bus obviously, but they give us the opportunity to find the barriers. At the same time running SSDs in RAID give us issues with TRIM and performance degradation and that is why we see the minimum write speed drop to half of the write speed.
