DiskSpd is a free and open-source command-line tool for storage benchmarking on Microsoft Windows that generates a variety of requests against computer files, partitions or storage devices and presents collected statistics as text in the command-line interface or as an XML file.
The command supports physical and virtual storage including hard disk drive (HDD), solid state devices (SSD), and solid state hybrid drives (SSHD). It provides control over the testing methods, duration, threads, queues, IO and processor affinity, and reporting.
DiskSpd works on desktop versions of Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, as well as Windows Server 2012, Windows 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016.
