DiskMark : Measure speed on HDs, SSDs, USB Stick's

DiskMark is a small utility that allows you to benchmark the performance of your hard drives and all your storage media in general. It allows you to specify many advanced options to determine and determine their operating performance.

Before starting, specify the storage medium you want to measure, specify the values ​​you will see in the small window that will open, and press Start. 

Below we describe what each of them is:  

  • Chunk Size: Allows you to specify how much data will be written to the test file at once.
  • IO : Specifies how many times the chunk size will be written to the test file. example: If you select a chunk size of 64KB and 1024 IO, the resulting test file will be 64MB, meaning the test will consist of writing a 64MB file, 64K at a time in 1.024 loops. The resulting file will also be used for the read test.
  • Iterations: Iterations allow you to set how many times the benchmark will run. Each iteration will allow DiskMark to average the performance of each IO, so a higher value (25 - 200 iterations) provides more accurate results.
  • Allow Intermediate Caching: When this option is selected, DiskMark will allow windows to use any available caches. Enabling this option will increase performance, but should be left unchecked if you only want to test the speed of your storage media.

BitMeter OS: Bandwidth meter

BitMeter OS is a free, open source, bandwidth monitor that works on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. BitMeter OS monitors how much you use your internet / network connection and allows you to view this information either through a web browser or using command line tools.

The online interface displays various graphs and charts that show how your internet-network connection has been used over time. The "monitor" window displays a graph that updates every second, showing you what's happening with your connection right now.

The query window provides detailed information about bandwidth usage on any date/dates you specify and allows you to export the results to a spreadsheet. In conclusion, this is a very simple and completely useful application.

ThrottleStop: Maximize your computer's CPU performance

ThrottleStop is a small application designed to monitor and fix the three main types of CPU throttling used on many laptops. 

The left side of ThrottleStop contains a variety of options that can be used to bypass CPU throttling, and on the right side is a monitoring panel that shows you the current status of each thread on your CPU. 

Some laptops use clock shaping and multiplier reductions to reduce your computer's performance and power consumption.&

This is done intentionally either to allow your computer to run without using its full potential, to allow your laptop to run on a power adapter that is insufficient to fully power your laptop and recharge the battery of at the same time.

When using the ThrottleStop, it is highly recommended that you monitor your power consumption to make sure that you do not exceed the power supply capacity of the power adapter. Happlication is designed for advanced computer users, therefore, you should be very careful about any modifications you make to your laptop, as overriding the default settings may cause permanent damage to the power adapter, or your computer, or both of which may not be covered by your warranty.

ParkControl: Modify your computer's energy profile

ParkControl CPU is a ΄΄hypnosis΄΄ state supported by most modern processors and operating systems where CPU cores are dynamically disabled in an attempt to save power when idle. 


WinContig : Folder and file reconstruction tool

WinContig is an easy-to-use defragmentation tool that aims to quickly defragment files without the need to defragment the entire disk.

It supports FAT32 and NTFS file systems and works with hard drives and SSDs. In reality you often want to defragment a single file or directory, for example to improve the loading speed of a program file or to reduce the loading time of a particular disk-intensive application such as a game.

It is specially designed to meet the needs of users who focus mainly on files and folders rather than an entire disk.

Its ability to filter files by multiple criteria combined with its ability to be controlled via command line make WinContig the perfect tool for deconstructing specific files that are frequently used and constantly fragmented.

WinContig is a standalone executable and does not require any installation process or DLL plugins. All the files needed to run it, including any settings, are in a single folder.
The deconstruction and parsing procedures are based on kernel interface library functions. Thus, performing the defragmentation process is safe and there is no risk of data loss. 

Specially designed to defragment individual files or entire folders without the need to defragment the entire disk, check disk integrity, check disks for file system errors and get some useful information from them.

It is available in more than 25 languages ​​thanks to the contributions of volunteers from all over the world. It is available as free software and you can use it on as many computers as you wish, both for personal and commercial use.
Finally, it allows you to optionally analyze and/or defragment files and folders, directly from File Explorer's context menu.
