How to check Mac Drive Performance?

If you are thinking that Mac is one of the most secured platforms to work upon then you are not wrong. Mac uses many inbuilt tools and features which decreases the need for any chances of file damage or corruption but as you know anything cannot be perfect. With the passage of time, when we install, delete, modify applications and data on Mac, all these activities raises the chances of fragmentation. It ultimately leads to the slow Mac performance. It is mainly due to the unused space because of disk fragmentation and unnecessary items and applications which eats up the important memory space of Mac hard drive. Disk optimization of Mac is a process of increasing the performance of your system. It is a process in which the physical locations of files on a volume are "streamlined." Files and metadata are re-arranged to improve data access times.

Every Mac users should analyze the performance of Mac drive regularly. You can do this by Disk Utility or a third party tool “Stellar Drive Toolbox”. Drive Performance utility of this tool helps to test your Mac volume or hard drive performance by examining the I/O data transfer rate.
Some prominent features of the 'Drive Performance' module are as follows:
  • It evaluates the performance of Mac hard drives and volumes
  • It helps to calculate data transfer rates for various read/write buffer sizes during disk I/O operations.
  • It shows performance of your hard drive in different graph layouts.
  • Gives the maximum, minimum, and average drive performance levels.

Drive Status utility helps to provide entire Mac hard drive information, including all basic details, full drive description, and the SMART status. If the problems found then volume repair utility helps to safely verifies, repairs, and rebuilds any Mac hard drive volume. It scans the entire Mac volume to find out various inconsistencies (such as incorrect permissions on system files and folders), and then rebuild Mac volume, repairs the file system of the corrupt volume. With the help of above described ways by which users can optimize mac performance and enjoy working with Mac.
