Use resource monitor which comes with windows. You can monitor ram,HDD read write speed and network usage for a given processor.


You can simulate simultaneous file downloads by multiple users using JMeter's HTTP Request sampler.

If you need to store downloaded files for later analysis you can use Save Responses to a file listener

Check out Performance Testing: Upload and Download Scenarios with Apache JMeter article for more information on how to properly configure JMeter to mimic file upload and download operations.
