Release Notes


CopyTimer is a SharePoint utility which performs a series of timed download/upload tests to a SharePoint server and records various additional information about the client computer including latency, network connection, ip address, etc... Results are posted to a specified SharePoint list as well as saved in a local XML file.

The files used for download/upload and some other options are configurable so you can run against any three files (different size, type, etc..) and easily modify the application to run in your SharePoint environment. It can be run from any client running Windows and it uses the WebDav protocol for file transfers.

CopyTimer is useful for calculating real world estimates of performance to SharePoint servers.


CopyTimer requires two files to run:
  • CopyTimer.exe (Binary)
  • CopyTimer.exe.config (XML Configuration File)
Be sure to configure the CopyTimer.exe.config before running the app.

You must configure CopyTimer.exe.config with the appropriate settings for your environment. Refer to the .config file which includes comments for help configuring the application. You must also add the 3 files to the SharePoint document library you wish to test. (These are the files which will be downloaded / uploaded) 3 sample files (Word docs) are included in the SampleTestFiles folder or you can use your own.
