Understand Why your Computer is Slow and How to Fix it

Why Computers Are So Slow?

• File system consists of a large number of files. OS needs to read many of them from hard drive at least once which takes time.

• Computer memory is not endless and all the files can not be always cached. Operating system has to read them from time to time.

• Hard disks are still not as fast as other systems.

Application needs to read two files file1 file2 Request file1 and file 2 Read time 2 Read time 1 Reading head Seek time 1 Seek time 2 Total time = Seek 1 + Read 1 + Seek 2 + Read 2

• Read time depends on the file size and it is lower for smaller files, but is still takes too long.

• Seek time depends on file location and access order and the larger the disc the higher the seek time.

• As disk becomes fragmented the seek time dramatically increases.

• Files are usually read one by one, so the application wastes time waiting for its reading queue.

Can Computer be Faster? YES !!!

• What do you need for this? An USB Flash drive or flash card and eBoostr.

How Does eBoostr Work?

• Each time the system needs to read a data eBoostr serves it from the cache with a balanced load of all devices.

Why do You Need a Flash Drive?

• Modern flash drive is faster than an average hard drive.

• Flash drive has a very low seek time.

• Flash drive is a cheap storage device.

What is eBoostr?

• eBoostr is a software package for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 ® systems

• It redirects file read requests to cache databases located on several devices.

• USB flash drives, SD/CF cards or hard disks can be used as cache device.
