Is there any tool (not from system ^1) that I could put in RAM disk and on normal disk. Run both and see the outrageous speed?
Some kind of tool, which will print me Read/Write in MBs?

^1 - Not from system, because I want to see how independant programs are running. That know almost nothing about their environment.

No matter what you do you are going to have to interact with the system in order to observe the activity. For Linux there is a great tool called sysstat which takes snapshots of the system activity peroiditacally and then lets you compile the reports later using sar.

I don't think you understood what I meant. I meant to check whether RAM Disk is working with such speed as it is supposed to be (faster than SSD). I did not meant to check system statistics.
