Measure Various Windows File IO Attribute Settings

The following test tries to measure the performance impact of various Windows File I/O attribute settings. The test copies a user provided file to a user provided destiation path. The test iterators over five different attributes in various combinations for both the source and destination file handle. The file is copied using a 512*512 (262144) size buffer.

The following attribute values are measured in various combinations:

The graphs were created using Excel and a Pivot table of the raw data. The Read attributes are in the columns, with the Write attributes in the rows.

Legend for column and row headinges:

For example, ANS is Async + NoBuffer + Sequencial.

My observations of the results:

* Click on column heading to sort. Supports multi-column sorts in order sorts applied.
Rows show the write attributes and Columns are the read attributes.
