Welcome to contoso.se! My name is Anders Bengtsson and this is my blog about Azure infrastructure and system management. I am a senior engineer in the FastTrack for Azure team, part of Azure Engineering, at Microsoft.  Contoso.se has two main purposes, first as a platform to share information with the community and the second as a notebook for myself.

Everything you read here is my own personal opinion and any code is provided "AS-IS" with no warranties.

Measure the time it takes to write a file

Update, download a MP with this script here, Contoso.Write.File.to.Share

I have written a script that writes a line of text to a file on a share. It will then return the time it took in the strTimer parameter. You can use this script to measure the time it takes to write text to a file on your network. The default share is \\\share. You can also change the loop (default 1500) to write the text line more times to the file, that would result in a test with a larger file.
