I/O performance measurement and load generation tool
Spew is used to measure I/O performance of character devices, block devices,
and regular files. It can also be used to generate high I/O loads to stress
systems while verifying data integrity.
Spew is easy to use and is flexible. No configuration files or complicated
client/server configurations are needed. Spew also generates its own data
patterns that are designed to make it easy to find and debug data integrity
The spew package is used to test I/O performance and to generate load
on character devices, block devices, and file systems. It is similar
to the lmdd program found in the lmbench test-suite
(http://www.bitmover.com/lmbench). It is a bit easier to use than lmdd
and has some added functionality. For example, it can test both
random and sequential I/O.

* Renamed the executable "snarf" to "gorge" to prevent a naming conflict with

* Fixed various Debian packaging problems.
* Command-line options can now be put in rcfiles.
Added an --rc-file option to specify a rcfile on the command-line.
Added an --no-rcfiles option to prevent the reading of standard rcfiles.
