StorScore A test framework to evaluate SSDs and HDDs #Cloud Server Infrastructure Engineering #CSI #ssd #winserv @microsoft   2 comments

StorScore is a component-level evaluation tool for testing storage devices.
When run with default settings it should give realistic metrics similar to
what can be expected by a Windows application developer.

You must download and install the following or StorScore will not work:

    A Windows Perl interpreter:
        ActiveState: http://www.activestate.com/activeperl
        Strawberry: http://strawberryperl.com/
   

Strawberry Perl is a perl environment for MS Windows containing all you need to run and develop perl applications. It is designed to be as close as possible to perl environment on UNIX systems.

With the output you can create some pivot tables and get great output.

  1. Can this be run on the host drive? (to drive from which the tool is being run). I ask this because you mention (on git) “Be aware that StorScore can easily be used in a data-destructive manner. Be careful with the –target option.”
