TxBENCH: Benchmark software for storage

This benchmark software measures storage performances for SSD, HDD and other drives.
It not only measures the performance of storage easily but also performs detailed speed measurements based on specified access patterns and long-period speed measurements. It also allows you to see each drive's supported features, enabled features, and S.M.A.R.T. information.

If Secure Erase failed...
When Secure Erase failed by a certain cause, there is a possibility that the drive can be locked by a password. If you encountered this issue, please try the password removal tool below.

Main Features

  1. Measures storage performances
    TxBENCH has both [Basic Benchmark] and [Advanced Benchmark] functions. [Basic Benchmark] allows you to easily measure storage performance. [Advanced Benchmark] allows you to measure storage performance with specified configurations. This software is the only software that measures storage performance using various methods.

  2. Measurement mode
    TxBENCH supports [FILE mode] and [RAW mode]. In [FILE mode], it creates a measurement file on the file system. In [RAW mode], it writes data directly on the drive's sectors. [FILE mode] and [RAW mode] are automatically selected depending to the state of the target drive.

  3. Measurement nearer to actual environment
    In [Advanced Benchmark], you can register 8 tasks, and configure various access settings (the Read/Write/Seek method, the Transmission size, the Alignment size, and Writing data). Depending the specified conditions, you can issue the FLUSH CACHE command, which force writes data in the cache, and TRIM (DATA SET MANAGEMENT) command only for SSD. These features enable you to measure performance nearer to the actual environment.

  4. Saving measurement results
    Measurement results can be saved as CSV files. You can specify update frequency of the result under [Advanced benchmark].

  5. Secure Erase function
    This function erases data (excluding the OS startup) from the drive. In the case of a SSD, it erases the data and easily reverts the SSD to its default state at the time of shipment.

  6. Detailed drive information
    This function displays various drive information, such as supported features, enabled features, and S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology). This information can be saved as a CSV file.
