Need a tool to measure data transfer speed

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


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.


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…
