Measuring speed

By LR Fox | October 24th, 2007 | 8:30 am

There’s been much discussion about speed measurement. A lot has been contradictory anecodotes and measurements. One person’s experience conflicts with another’s; one version is slower than an older version. I’ve had positive experiences but the fact that there are users who have not is troubling.

The only way to settle the speed improvement debate is to measure the speed before and after with third party software. Can anyone recommend a third party piece of software that could measure objectively eBoost’s speed?

    I think a lot of people forget that when youve started a program, quit it, its still in your (paged) memory. This way you *think* it starts faster (well, it does), but its not an “objective” way of measuring. You should reboot, or at least clear your memory first.

    Spiked: This is a system memory cache and you can notice that we are trying to clear it during each phase of eBoostr SpeedMeasure tool.
    LR Fox: SpeedMeasure tool was developed especially for beta testing and claims an objective results.

    hi, i measured the speed before and after caching files, with the eboostr measuring tool and with the chronograph. i think the beta 4 rel. is less speed. My apps start slowly even if i started and quitted them, just like without eboostr. this didn’t happen with the beta 2 that was very fast on the system boot too, but crashed several times.

    I searched everywhere for the SpeedMeasure tool. I could not find it.
