Garbsen, Germany— February 10, 2003— HELIOS Software GmbH, a leading
developer of network and prepress server solutions, announced the release
of HELIOS LanTest for Mac OS X. Used widely throughout the networking
industry as a standard testing, diagnostic and benchmarking tool, HELIOS
LanTest helps users determine network server volume and local hard disk

HELIOS LanTest testing includes:

* Create, open, and delete files
* Write/Read throughput test
* File locking performance
* Printing and spooling performance testing
* Single user and multi-user server testing

HELIOS LanTest is used by many vendors and users for:

* Network switch throughput testing
* Local hard disk throughput and reliability testing
* Macintosh hardware burn-in and reliability testing

HELIOS LanTest 3.1 is completely Mac OS X native including support for
Apple’s Mac OS X Aqua interface. LanTest is also fully compatible with OS 9
clients. It can test any AFP-compatible file server or a local hard disk
and can be controlled via AppleScript.

“The success of our LanTest application relies on the fact that it is very
easy to use. Every user can use LanTest immediately with just a few
clicks,” stated Helmut Tschemernjak, president of HELIOS Software GmbH.
“LanTest scales very well from single user tests, up to complete multi-user
server and network performance benchmarking. LanTest is used as well for
hardware reliability testing.”
