Fossil Toys are free online web-based utilities for your computer testing to determine what the weak chain in your system configuration is.
* Multiple OS are supported: Mac, Windows, Linux, and Unix.
* Multiple browsers are supported: IE, Firefox, Opera, and Safari.
*You may use the same tools in a multi-platform environment.
* No software installation required.
* Hit the ground running on unfamiliar systems. Run these web-based tools immediately and without messing up the operating system with additional executables.
1. PC Speed: PC CPU speed monitor / benchmark software with logging facility.
* Simple but effective web-based online PC speed monitor (CPU and RAM).
* Monitors not just CPU speed, but also system slowdown due to insufficient RAM.
* More accurate indication of system speed/response time, than CPU idle time (user-perceived system speed is not zero, when CPU idle time is zero).
* Unobtrusive - speed is displayed in window title, even when web browser is minimized.
* Stores log of last 1,500 speeds.
* CSV export feature for spreadsheet analysis.
* Displays minimum and maximum speeds recorded during monitoring period.
2. Memory Load Test: Testing application/operating system behavior under low memory conditions.
The professional memory tester, recommended for the software developers, system administrators, and very experienced power computer operators.
Caution! Can result in severe system slowdown or even crash the operating system. Don't perform the test unless you know what you are doing.
3. CPU Load Test: Testing application/operating system behavior under high CPU load conditions.
* CPU burn-in test, stress test, stability test, temperature test.
* Simulate an older, slower machine, for software development purposes.
* Simulate heavy load on OS, to test system administration procedures.
* Slow down speed of other applications to more easily observe their operation e.g. to read error messages that are displayed too quickly.
* Examine the behavior of dual-core and other multi-core systems (check CPU utilization). At 100% Duty Cycle setting - is one core loaded to 100% the other unloaded, or both loaded to 100%, or both loaded to 50%?
4. System Information: Information reported by the web browser, and the web server. It includes the Internet address of the web browser, or its proxy server.
* Provides IP Information from www.ipligence.com.
* Information about PC and web browser, as reported by web browser.
* Information about PC and web browser, as reported by web server.
5. Monitor calibration: Test patterns for checking/adjusting monitor resolution, flatness, dead pixels, brightness and contrast.
* Utility works for monitors and projectors.
* Checks that all colors are displayed correctly.
* Checks monitor resolution/sharpness.
* Detects dead pixels and checks even illumination.
* Checks display flatness. Used to adjust monitor keystoning, barrel/pincushion if available.
* Checks how many different brightness levels can be displayed. Used to adjust monitor brightness and contrast settings.
* Offers simple check of total number of pixels displayed by monitor.
* Provides links to the advanced monitor calibration web sites.
6. Uptime Counter and Monitor: Monitors PC uptime, how long since PC was rebooted.
This online utility shows elapsed time since this web page was loaded.
It can be used to approximate PC up time, if web page is loaded - and kept open - immediately after PC reboot. Unlike native Windows and Linux utilities, this web page provides a continuously updated count of how long the PC has been up.
IP address is shown for convenient reference. It is useful to quickly identify PC if using KVM or remote access.
7. Pixel Screen Ruler: Ruler to measure screen object pixel dimensions (horizontal and vertical).
The green image has horizontal and vertical scales marked out in pixels. By comparing any screen object against these scales, an estimate of the pixel dimensions of the object can be made.
