Screenshot of Iometer

Iometer is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and
clustered systems. Iometer is pronounced “eye-OM-i-ter,” to rhyme with
“thermometer.” Iometer does for a computer’s I/O subsystem what a dynamometer
does for an engine: it measures performance under a controlled load. Iometer was
formerly known as “Galileo.”

Iometer is both a workload generator (that is, it performs I/O operations in order to
stress the system) and a measurement tool (that is, it examines and records the
performance of its I/O operations and their impact on the system). It can be configured
to emulate the disk or network I/O load of any program or benchmark, or can be used
to generate entirely synthetic I/O loads. It can generate and measure loads on single or
multiple (networked) systems.

Iometer can be used for measurement and characterization of:

  • Performance of disk and network controllers.
  • Bandwidth and latency capabilities of buses.
  • Network throughput to attached drives.
  • Shared bus performance.
  • System-level hard drive performance.
  • System-level network performance.

To install Iometer (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install iometer

To upgrade Iometer (Install), run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
