benchmarking the hard drive
« on: March 20, 2019, 12:09:36 PM »
Hello. Just a question: is there a way to benchmark the system volume speed?

I am, in fact, fascinated by the idea of moving the T: virtual volume from RAM:T to SYS:T on SSD devices. This would save RAM for processes when you haven't many (imagine running AROS with less of 512 MB today), at the cost of a little downstep on I/O operations, specially when running scripts.

My goal would be probing the speed at first setup, and then proposing the user to move T to the SSD drive, but I wouldn't make this question to everyone. Is there any tool or any scripting trick that would let me perform this task?
