Super Simple Disk Benchmark
inspired by simple disk benchmark.
This tool has just one single purpose, it measures the writing performance of your hard disk on macOS and Linux. More precisely spoken of the disk under your
It used random data from
/dev/random and writes first sequentially chunks of 4MB until a total 4GB is written. It measures writing time and throughput.
After that it writes this random data 8 times again on disk and measures the average writing times and throughput for this.
To install the ssd-benchmark tool, you just need to run
cargo install --force ssd-benchmark
(--force just makes it update to the latest version if it's already installed)
to verify if the installation went through, you can run
ssd-benchmark that should output similar to

The great thing is, there are no parameters or options.
If you miss a feature file an issue on github and don't forget to star the repo.
