Page 4 - Benchmark: ATTO Disk Benchmark

About ATTO Disk Benchmark

The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.

Following up next is our usual ATTO read and write tests. ATTO is one of my favorite benchmarks for quite a while. Ever since we have started using it in my network attached storage reviews a few years ago, it has been integral to our battery of storage performance evaluations here at APH Networks -- mainly due to its accuracy, and thorough testing in accordance to varying transfer sizes. As you can see on our graphs above, the Silicon Power Diamond D06 1TB's read performance and write performance is roughly the same; peaking at 116.711 MB/s and 118.514 MB/s, respectively. Under the curve, the Silicon Power Diamond D06 1TB reaches maximum performance for everything 32K and above. Interestingly, this external hard drive is pretty competitive against the other 1TB USB 3.0 hard drives used in this test. The Diamond D06 delivered consistently better small file I/O speed than the Armor A30 and HV620. Of course, as we move to larger transfer sizes, they are all pretty close, as you can see in our graphs above.
