A utility designed to test file server performance.
Version:A professional tool for network administrators, other software vendors, and 3rd party developers to test and measure performance of AppleShare services. It offers detailed Macintosh network evaluations for file and record locking as well as for many typical file system operations. LanTest results can be used for finding bottlenecks, for troubleshooting, or just for maintenance purposes.
Operating System: Mac OS X
With LanTest 3.1 the read and write performance via faster networks like Fast Ethernet or FDDI, as well as Gigabit Ethernet can be tested with 30 MB or 3 MB files. This setting is recommended to test EtherShare if using TCP/IP transport instead of AppleTalk.
With very fast networks like the new Gigabit Ethernet performance testing can now be performed with 300 MB files. Any AppleTalk PAP compliant PostScript device of type LaserWriter can be tested.
