  • March 31, 2009 - Release of our update for WinXP.  This provides a VS2005 project, and adapts all file operations to use appropriate share modes in buffered and unbuffered mode.  C standard library string functions are still used, but warnings about them are disabled.

Description

Postmark 1.51 is the last available update of the Postmark file system benchmark, originally by Jeffery Katcher at Network Appliance, Inc.

We've updated Postmark 1.51 to build with recent Microsoft tools, and updated the software to open files for shared operation, in both buffered and unbuffered mode.  This modification was made to facilitate operation on OpenAFS filesystem paths without server locking when "relaxed open" semantics are used.

An for executable for 32-bit platforms is included in the archive.
