Drobo

Need a tool to measure data transfer speed

hello,
Could someone please recommend a tool (Mac OSX 10.6 compatible) that will help me measure data transfer rate between my Mac and Drobo?

thanks!

Have a look at AJA System Test.app from http://www.aja.com/products/software/

I believe Drobo even references the tool itself on their own website. Unfortunately, I can tell you that it will report that the Drobo is slow, because, well, they’re slow.

:slight_smile:

For AJA measurement parameters, you may look at this thread.
Plenty of other threads on the forum related to multiple performance issues.
Unfortunately, the summary of jordantbro is right : Drobo is damn slow… and the more you use it, the slower it gets :frowning:
And for obvious reasons, Drobo Inc. is less than candid on all those subjects…
