DiglloydTools 2.0 adds SSD performance enhancement tools

updated 05:10 pm EDT, Thu April 15, 2010

Utility claimed to restore write speed

Diglloyd has released an update to its Mac performance optimization suite, diglloydTools. Version 2.0 features performance enhancement for solid-state drives (SSDs). The recondition command is claimed to restore performance on SSDs that begin to show deteriorating transfer speeds, especially with write operations on older drives.

The fill-volume command forces a drive to proactively map bad blocks, with data verification as part of the read phrase. The software also adds a run-stream command which tests how many simultaneous data streams can run.

Users can take advantage of five graphing templates to visualize fill-volume, run-sequential-suite, run-area-test, recondition and compute commands. The fill-volume and read-files commands have been enhanced to verify files previously created by DiskTester, while the stress command now verifies that copied memory matches the original.

DiglloydTools 2 is now available as a free update for existing customers, or $40 for new customers. The suite includes DiskTester, MemoryTester, and IntegrityChecker.
