SysInfoMyWork – added 2/11/2004

SysInfoMyWork system monitoring software is a system tray tool for monitoring your system memory and CPU load and displays the information with a small, animated icon in the system tray. You can also set it to automatically defrag your memory once it reaches a specified capacity and change the color of the tray icon.

StatBar – added 7/26/2003

StatBar works as a system status bar which allows you to quickly get an overview of your system’s condition including memory usage, CPU, uptime and more. It also includes a time synchronization feature, special support for WinAmp controls as well as a master volume control. StatBar is completely cusomizable, you can chose from several different color schemes (including XP style) and select the modules to display on the bar.

Roadkil’s Disk Speed – added 12/27/2004

Roadkils Disk Speed performs a disk speed test and provides details about how fast your disks can transfer data. The information provided includes data transfer rate for linear reads, random read transfer rate and the seek time of the drive.

BruteBenchmark – added 11/18/2005

BruteBenchmark offers simple, fast and relevant methods to check, save (and later compare) the performance of a processor, video card and hard disk. Two-three relatively simple, but of real office/scientific application interest, tests are performed for each hardware category and a benchmark result is computed. Accurate and of real interest scores can be obtained quickly (arround 30 seconds are enough), not being necessary to wait for minutes and minutes again to get the results.

HD Tune – added 10/5/2005

HD Tune – a hard disk benchmarking utility which has the following functions: benchmark transfer rate, access time, CPU Usage, and burst rate; hard disk information which includes partition information, supported features, firmware version, serial number, disk capacity, buffer size, transfer mode, hard disk health, S.M.A.R.T. information, error scan, and temperature display.

PassMark DiskCheckup – added 7/31/2005

PassMark DiskCheckup allows the user to monitor the SMART attributes of a particular hard disk drive. SMART ( Self Monitoring Analysis & Reporting Technology ) is an interface between a computer’s BIOS (basic input/output system) and the computer hard disk. It is a feature of the Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics (EIDE) technology that controls access to the hard drive. If S.M.A.R.T is enabled when a computer is set up, the BIOS can receive analytical information from the hard drive and determine whether to send the user a warning message about possible future failure of the hard drive.

CrystalCPUID – added 5/17/2005
