Cock provides a digital version of a petcock. A petcock is a valve or faucet used to drain pressure, as from a boiler. Cock drains I/O pressure from the kernel. Without parameters, the output rate automatically adjusts; cock defers output when necessary in order to mitigate I/O spikes. Otherwise, a numeric parameter specifies megabytes per second.

Data Shovel Pinnacle Performance Utilities is a collection of utilities for large input/output tasks. bare takes line feed-separated file names on standard input and concatenates the file contents on standard output. baresha512 takes line feed-separated file names on standard input and provides the SHA512 message digest for the concatenated file content on standard output. Both can optionally open and read files with O_DIRECT, bypassing the kernel's block cache. cock provides a digital petcock. It relives I/O pressure on the kernel by rate limiting data throughput. It can auto-throttle to mitigate lag spikes, or use a specified megabytes-per-second rate limit.
