Services and Software Tools for Measuring and Monitoring Disk I/O Performance

Determining and evaluating disk storage I/O operation performance can be complicated, difficult, and frustrating.

Benchmarking test results, product reviews, and analyst recommendations can provide helpful baseline information.  But ultimately, it’s your own environment with your particular device and application usage — including everyday, normal use — that matters most to you.

So how have you attempted to assess the disk I/O performance actually experienced by your applications, workloads, and users?

hIOmon is Here to Help

The hIOmon services and software from hyperI/O LLC promote a top-down approach using empirical, pertinent I/O performance metrics.

The hIOmon software tools enable you to immediately collect, display, and export summary I/O operation performance metrics.  Rather than overwhelming you with volumes of I/O operation trace data that must be subsequently post-processed, hIOmon can automatically summarize metrics — moreover, at the time when the I/O operations are actually observed by hIOmon I/O Monitor.

This robust set of summary metrics includes the hIOmon “Performance Threshold Range Metrics”.  These metrics along with the hIOmon DXTI metric and many others enable you to quickly and specifically characterize the actual “I/O Profiles” associated with your particular devices, applications, and workloads.

Simple, Quick, and Easy to Use

The hIOmon Services and Software Store features a progressive set of hIOmon services:

• The hIOmon “Workload I/O Characterization Service (WIOCS)”, which provides an “out-of-the-box“, fully-automated approach to configuring the hIOmon software.

• The hIOmon “Disk I/O Ranger Service (DIORS)”, which extends the WIOCS with additional configuration options such as the ability to explicitly specify which specific files are to be monitored.

• The hIOmon “I/O Performance Monitor (IOPM) Toolkit Service“, which extends the DIORS by providing a comprehensive set of features and capabilities that include the ability to collect, view, and export “I/O trace” records for individual file and disk I/O operations.

Simple, Quick, and Easy to Acquire

All of the hIOmon Services noted above are available directly from the hIOmon Store in a convenient, e-store fashion.

The hIOmon Services are offered upon a simple, subscription-fee basis, with subscription extensions also available.  Please note that all hIOmon software associated with the hIOmon Services is licensed, not sold.
