SiSoftware Sandra Lite XII give many different bench marks.. not just for servers but a nice program to learn about lots of different bench marks..

however if you want to betesting things like SQL servers or exchange you need to find tools dedicated to jsut test these system..

SiSoftware Sandra Lite  will do a nice generaly disk tesk, for speed and i/o operations. but of course it is not as good as a pure disk system testing tool.

but with it you will find a test for every part of the system. cpu/memory/sound/video/disk/network

and it also has a nice base line database you can compare your systems aginst, to see if you are getting expected figures..

sorry that was not very helpfull last post..

The Free version does not allow you to run bench marks remotly.. but you can install it on a server connected to a domain and run the bench marks on that system...

the paid for versions alow you to have a central consol and run benchmarks on remote system..

but the free version has a lot of funcantality. and gives you a good introduction to benchmarking. as well as a nice database of base line system.. and you can add in your own so see how simmler systems match up to each other..
