How to test NAS speed

Network-attached storage (NAS) devices are essentially hard drives that are connected to a network that allows data to be shared among multiple computers. These devices have largely replaced file servers for network file sharing because they allow faster data access when compared to file servers. Use a NAS performance program to test the speed of your NAS system. Instructions
Open your computer’s web browser and navigate to a website that offers a downloadable NAS performance testing program. NAS Performance Tester, Intel NAS Performance Toolkit and NetBench are some of the programs that offer this service. (See Resources).

Download and install the program on your computer.

Double-click the program icon to open the application. < br>

Click the “Configure” button in the application window and select the NAS drive you want to test.

Place a checkmark next to the tests at the desired speed to run on your unit and click the “Prepare” button. Allow several minutes for test preparation to finish.

Click on the “Test Applications” tab and select the desired test from the drop-down menu.

Click the “Run” button in the main application window. Allow several minutes for the test to finish.

Click the “View Log” button when the test is complete to view the test results.
