Diskeeper’s intelligent resource monitoring, InvisiTasking®, ensures all optimization occurs without hampering system resources, so servers can operate at full production while Diskeeper runs in the background. InvisiTasking monitors resource consumption on a Windows system (disk, memory, network and CPU usage) and uses only resources that are otherwise idle, so Diskeeper runs invisibly with no intrusion on system resources.
InvisiTasking monitors volumes for files that are impacting performance and deploys the Instant Defrag™ engine to consolidate the few remaining fragments on HDDs (SSDs excluded) that were not eliminated by IntelliWrite, if any. With Diskeeper Server, optimization is proactive, continuous and seamless.
For IT professionals who need to deploy Diskeeper across multiple servers, the Diskeeper Administrator console allows for seamless network deployment – no reboot required. For Windows servers, Diskeeper is the only highly efficient and proactive software for maximum performance—making it the #1 solution for keeping Windows servers running better than new.
Diskeeper 18 Server contains a toolkit of proactive and highly-efficient technologies:
- IntelliWrite® write I/O optimization technology prevents files from being fractured and broken apart into pieces, with each piece requiring its own I/O operation before being written to disk or SSD in a non-sequential manner. This stops the Windows phenomena of fragmentation from occurring before it becomes a problem.
- IntelliMemory® read I/O optimization technology intelligently caches active data from read requests using idle server memory. This further reduces I/O overhead to the underlying storage device, enabling organizations to get more performance and life from the hardware they already have.
- InvisiTasking® intelligent monitoring technology allows all “background” operations within the system to run with near-zero resource impact on current activities.
- Benefit Reporting dashboard displays the actual “time saved” benefit on every system so the value is easily quantifiable and never in question. It also shows fragments eliminated and what that means to percentage of write and read I/O reduction and how much I/O time was saved on that system due to writing and reading files in a sequential state as opposed to fragmented state. It also shows the percentage of all read traffic that is cached from idle DRAM and what that means to time saved by serving reads from DRAM instead of the underlying storage device. See displays for free spaces consolidated and total I/Os removed from both write and read optimization and total time saved for any given period of time.
- I/O Performance Monitoring reveals key performance metrics like IOPS, throughput and latency. It reveals the amount of workload processed on the local system for any given time period. It also provides important memory usage information like total physical memory and min/max/avg of available memory and how much of that was used for cache. This helps administrators fine tune memory allocations to get the most from the IntelliMemory DRAM caching engine. If there is not sufficient available DRAM, users are not getting the best performance possible from Diskeeper.
- Analytics provides an hour-by-hour view for any time period to understand exactly what is happening on the local system related to key metrics like workload, read/write percentage, IOPS, throughput, I/O response time and benefits like write I/O reduction from IntelliWrite and read I/O reduction from IntelliMemory
- Instant Defrag™ technology has been enhanced to monitor volumes to resolve critically fragmented files in real-time that are known to cause performance problems, making it SAN-friendly. This feature is turned off in the event of solid-state drives. This is the perfect complement to IntelliWrite in the rare instance that not all fragments were eliminated in the first place.
- Efficient Mode in addition to an extensive defrag mode, Efficient Mode offers the greatest net gain in system I/O resource savings ever available. It immediately targets and eliminates only fragmentation that directly affects system performance that is on the system and Diskeeper automatically prevents most fragmentation after installation.
- Free Space Consolidation Engine swiftly consolidates free space and tightly integrates with Instant Defrag to handle new fragmentation as soon as it is created. Efficiently handle rare cases of volumes with extreme free space fragmentation.
- Terabyte Volume Engine® Technology engineered to rapidly defragment volumes with hundreds of thousands of files.
- Network Management Support ensures easy management of Diskeeper 18 settings and functionality across the network through the Diskeeper 18 Administrator edition or Group Policy. No reboot required during installation.

Diskeeper requires 250MB of available hardware space. IntelliMemory caching requires a minimum of 3GB of memory on the system and at least 1.5GB of idle, available memory before caching will initiate.
Diskeeper Server requires .NET 4. If .Net 4 is not installed on your system, Diskeeper will attempt to download and install it for you. Internet Explorer v11 or later is required to access all the Diskeeper UI features.
As a normal part of its operation, the Diskeeper Service (DkService.exe) acts as a Windows service on your system. If you are running a hardware or software firewall, you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Service is trying to act as a Windows service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events. This functionality is designed to allow for support for network operations (e.g. Remote Control) via Diskeeper Administrator.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper is trying to access the Internet. It is important to note that Diskeeper does not access the Internet (except when you specifically use the Check for Updates feature or you opt in to send performance data for analysis), but it does use Windows mechanisms that may trigger these alerts from your firewall. Again, these messages are expected and you can safely allow the events. If networkability or automatic update checking is not required, you can safely disable this.
Stop fragmentation-based lags and crashes on Windows server systems in their tracks – even when demand is at its absolute highest! Lower your operating costs and increase your server performance with Diskeeper Server edition.
Final pack version is modded for not showing evaluation copy. Just prove to be working well.
