Testing Speed to External Storage

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Seth H Holmes, Sep 16, 2003.

  1. Greetings,

    I'm trying to test the speed betwen a file/application server and
    it's external storage device. It seems to be a huge bottleneck in
    local file transfers. Or if just could be a problem due to
    transferring to the external disk which is an NFS mount.

    What I want to be able to do is test speed from the server
    itself, and then from one of the machines which has the external
    disk mounted via NFS.

    Does anyone have a tool they can recommend to do this? (Outside
    of simply copying a large file from the external disk to a local
    disk on each of the machines and hope I can do math.)

    Much appreciated.
