Helios on Friday announced that its free LanTest and File System Test network performance utilities are now Universal binaries that run natively on Intel or PowerPC-based Macs. What’s more, they also support 10 gigabit Ethernet networks.
LanTest measures the throughput and performance of a computer network as it opens, creates and deletes files; checks file locking performance, performs read and write tests; examines print and spooling performance and tests single and multiuser server connections.
File System Test lets Mac users verify whether the file server they’re connected to is compatible with Mac OS X. It checks for the presence of Apple Filing Protocol (AFP), Windows SMB Protocol (SMB/CIFS), Network File System (NFS) and iDisk HTTP-based connections using Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV).
