Microsoft released diskspd beginning 2015 and called it “a Robust Storage Testing Tool”.

I’ve used this program a lot lately, although it is a great storage testing tool I missed an easy interface to start a few tests and a nice report afterwards.

Introducting DiskSpeed:

 

The tool is completely build in Powershell using Winforms and lets you set all important parameters used in diskspd.

Highlights:

-        Predefined profiles in there so you can just start the tool and run it.

-        Up to 10 tests

-        Ability to import and export config for later use

-        Results directly in the GUI

-        CSV export for use in excel

-        Fancy HTML export:

 

 

 

Dependencies:

diskspd.exe.

NOTE:
This GUI will help you with running diskspd and only interpret the output givin by the diskspd.exe and show it in a nice way.

Disclamer:
