Storage Device Block Driver Benchmark Test (Windows CE 5.0)
The Storage Device Block Driver Benchmark Test analyzes the performance of a storage device in reading and writing. The test scans a storage device and attempts to read from and write to every sector on the device. The test displays information about the time required to complete each operation.
You may find it useful to know the time required to complete a read or write operation if you have problems with the file system on the storage device. For example, the test may show you that one disk takes 400 milliseconds (ms) to write, passing the test, while another disk takes 1500 ms to write, failing the test.
The following table shows the hardware requirements for the Storage Device Block Driver Benchmark Test.
|A storage device||A storage device that uses a memory block (DSK) device driver, for example a PCMCIA ATA disk or PC Card.|
The following table shows the software requirements for the Storage Device Block Driver Benchmark Test.
|Rw_all.dll||Test .dll file.|
|Tux.exe||Tux Test Harness, which is required for executing the test.|
|Kato.dll||Kato Logging Engine, which is required for logging test data.|
|Tooltalk.dll||Application required by Tux.exe and Kato.dll. Handles the transport between the target device and the development workstation.|
Note When you run the Storage Device Block Driver Benchmark Test, the CETK temporarily copies files to the root directory of the target device. Before running the test, verify that there is at least 0.4 megabytes (MB) of free space in the root directory of the target device. If there is not sufficient space in the root directory of the target device, the test cannot run.
