Hard drive benchmark suite.
It is called Bonnie++ because it was based on the Bonnie program. This program also tests performance with creating large numbers of files. Now includes zcav raw-read test program. A modern hard drive will have more sectors in the outer tracks because they are longer. The hard drive will have a number (often more than 8) of zones where each zone has the same number of sectors (due to the need for an integral number of sectors per track). This program allows you to determine the levels of performance provided by different zones and store them in a convenient format for gnuplot.
This is the experimental version. It's not ready to replace the 1.x series in time for Lenny but will be for Lenny+1. The extra features (large file support, better bon_csv2html, and support for zcav tests on multiple devices) will make it worth using for some people.
