HELIOS LanTest helps users determine network server volume and local disk performance and reliability.
Hannover, Germany (PRWEB) July 21, 2006
HELIOS Software GmbH, a leading provider of enterprise and prepress server solutions, announced that HELIOS LanTest and HELIOS File System Test— the company's popular, no-cost, Mac network performance and compatibility testing programs— now support the new Mac Intel computers and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks.
HELIOS LanTest and HELIOS File System Test are Mac Universal Binary applications and therefore work natively on Mac PPC and Mac Intel computers. The new HELIOS LanTest version has built-in testing configurations for Ethernet/DSL, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It vigorously tests a local network's throughput and performance, as it rapidly:
- creates, opens and deletes files
- performs read/write throughput tests
- checks file locking performance
- examines print and spooling performance
- tests single- and multi-user server connections
"HELIOS LanTest is widely accepted as a standard testing, diagnostic and benchmarking tool throughout the networking industry," explained Helmut Tschemernjak, president of HELIOS Software GmbH. "HELIOS LanTest helps users determine network server volume and local disk performance and reliability."
"HELIOS LanTest is used by many vendors and enterprise users for network throughput testing," added Tom Hallinan, HELIOS Strategic Partner Manager. "The success of HELIOS LanTest is due to its easy setup and usage, which can be done in seconds by any user."
HELIOS File System Test lets every Mac user verify, in a quick and reliable way, whether the utilized file server is in all respects compatible with Mac OS X. The HELIOS File System Test suite includes 11 different tests and is suited to examine the following Mac OS X network connections:
- Apple Filing Protocol (AFP)
- Windows SMB Protocol (SMB/CIFS)
- Network File System (NFS)
- iDisk HTTP-based Protocol (WebDAV)
"Among other things, the program checks the support of file sizes exceeding 4 GB, long file names, UTF-8 compatibility, correct file access rights, as well as the consistent use of file/directory IDs," explained Thomas Kaiser, noted networking authority. "If a server fails the examination, HELIOS File System Test will issue a detailed error log message."
