Hello,

our network users are complaining that the access time for some files (typically PDF) on a certain share is sometimes very slow. The file server is Win 2008 R2.

How can I monitor the time to access or open a file?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion!

This is now possible with Custom Sensor PTF.ReadFile

PTF.ReadFile reads a file into memory and returns the number of bytes/sec.

The sensor uses the following parameters

-f=     The file to read.
-u=     Optional domain\user to read the file.
-p=     Optional password or passhash * to read the file.

The sensor can be downloaded here

Hello,

I'm afraid as there is no dedicated sensor for this, you could try using the solution from the |We would like to know how long a file takes to copy. The copy-operation should be similar to opening a file which should be a copy to the local RAM.

best regards.
