Enlighten your Xsan with DiskFire.
We have been looking for a tool to test and tune the performance of Xsan volumes. We needed something that could generate concurrent IO to analyse the aggregate throughput of large SAN volumes. We also needed the ability to specify a path for the IO, so we could test individual Xsan affinities.
We couldn't find a nice tool to do this - so we decided to create our own!

DiskFire is specifically designed with Xsan in mind. Test your SAN perfomance by generating multiple concurrent IO streams. You can configure the size, blocksize, and the number of parallel IO threads. DiskFire lets you choose a target path for the IO, so you can test and tune down to individual affinities.
We are an independent IT consultancy focusing on the Apple platform. We offer a range of IT professional services including solution design, workflow optimisation and software development. We specialise in custom Final Cut Server integration, and Xsan / StorNext shared storage solutions.
This is just the first release of DiskFire and we would love the hear your feedback.
