Intel® NAS Performance Toolkit
NAS performance measurements engineers can use and consumers will understand
The Intel® NAS Performance Toolkit (Intel® NASPT) is a file system exerciser and analysis tool designed to enable performance comparisons between network attached storage (NAS) devices. Intel NASPT focuses on user-level performance using real world workload traces gathered from typical digital home applications: HD video playback and record, data backup and restore utilities, office productivity applications, video rendering and content creation, and more. Intel NASPT reproduces the file system traffic observed in these traces onto whatever storage solution the user provides, records the system response, and reports a rich variety of performance information. The end result is readily comparable performance measurements that are useful to developers as well as intuitive and compelling to consumers.
While Intel NASPT runs on a Microsoft Windows XP* client, the target NAS device may run any operating system.
Intel® NAS Performance Toolkit features:
- Provides user-relevant performance measurements across a variety of storage devices
- Expresses results in an easy to understand format using compelling use cases
- Easy to learn and use
- Includes results analysis tool for deeper understanding of test results
