Looks like the Exchange team has been busy lately. Here’s a list of new/updated downloads that appeared today:
- Exchange Server Profile Analyzer: Collects statistics on server usage for capacity planning, health monitoring, etc.
- Application Analyzer 2006 for Lotus Domino: Reports on your currently deployed Lotus Domino-based applications with the purpose of helping you plan a migration to Exchange/SharePoint
- Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer 2.6: This is a new version of my favorite Exchange tool. Read more about all the exciting new and improved features on the EHLO Blog.
- Exchange Server Performance Troubleshooting Analyzer: Not to be confused with the Profile Analyzer, this tool is all about diagnosing performance problems on production systems. Hopefully you won’t need this little gem (because you load test and over-build before going live, right?!?!)… but if you do, it can be a life saver.
I’ll give the new ExBPA a try tomorrow. I’m currently building a 4000+ mailbox FE/BE Exchange 2003 environment for a client here in KC. We’ve got clusters, SAN connections, antivirus, and all kinds of other goodies for ExBPA to report on. More info soon…
