An important factor which has a great impact on the performance of the computer is the data fragmentation. The data fragmentation occurs when especially the disk reaches the memory limit or the reserved disk system space is getting smaller. The hard drive is thereby forced to “fragment” and redistribute files more and more depending on availability, which can characterize increases the read and write time of the disk noticeably. Thus forcing the fragmentation of your hard drive data to work in addition, a complete reading is then only take place if the fragmented data – that have been located on different memory locations on the hard disk – which greatly affect the entire the read-write process. A disk defragmenter application can help: rearranges fragmented data in a natural way, so that they can be read at the maximum possible speed. This allows the hard drive more efficient to work so perfectly. A defragmentation process may take several minutes to several hours. The most important criteria are the degree of defragmentation, hard drive capacity, the number of files and the chosen defragmentation algorithm.
DDoS attacks of the type
The performance of an operating system can be affected significantly by an online haker attack. DDoS attacks are those type that purpose is to block online listening applications and are becoming more common on Web servers and Web services. Private computers are usually not targets of such attacks, the main objective are larger or smaller sites. The goal is an unfair removal of market competitors, which may lead to significant financial losses at these sites. Such an attack can compromise the functionality of a web page for a few minutes, several hours or even days. An equally noticeable effect is a slow run of the entire system and can lead to complete blockage of software features.
