Re: Iometer is outdated...
Actually, TweakTown is outdated. Sure, a few oldtimers are still clinging to their enterprise benchmarks but people really in the know? Not so much.

Frankly, most of us are using tools far more advanced than any Tweaktown has dreamt of, either now, or after their upcoming revision to the Astroturf 2000 Dupe-System.

As it stands, I feel sorry for people like paula672 who have been lulled into thinking that time won't pass them by. Here's a tip: don't use the "advanced tools" that paula672 mentioned. Oh, wait. paula672 didn't mention any advanced tools. paula672 simply stated that advanced tools exist and that a tool someone else mentioned is outdated. Well, astroturfing is never outdated, is it?

Iometer is outdated...
I wonder which sites the author is refering to?  A few websites, such as TweakTown, conduct enterprise testing with advanced tools that go beyond anything Iometer was capable of, or is even capable as of now with the new reporting system.

Interesting improvement
I was not aware of the Iometer evolution after Intel discontinued development and handed the sources to the Open Source Development Lab.

It is interesting what people can do to improve a classic tool. Iometer 1.1 looks like a serious tool that could help to analyze latency in many circustances.
