hdparm is a standard CLI for testing disk speed and the drives don’t have to be mounted (when doing read tests).

$ sudo hdparm -tT /dev/nvme0n1

/dev/nvme0n1:
 Timing cached reads:   20760 MB in  1.99 seconds = 10414.33 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 5104 MB in  3.00 seconds = 1701.12 MB/sec

$ sudo hdparm -tT /dev/sdb

/dev/sdb:
 Timing cached reads:   18822 MB in  1.99 seconds = 9442.74 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  80 MB in  3.08 seconds =  26.01 MB/sec

The first drive is an SSD and the second drive is a USB pen drive.

⇧ Something similar to GNOME's AlternateTab on Unity? Why can't I cd to a quoted tilde ('~')?  β‡©
