Thanks to my friend Serge, who pointed out this great tool, SharePoint Diagnostic Studio helps me review key health metrics for SharePoint 2010 farms and provides information to help investigate a variety of common performance and configuration issues.
What is SharePoint Diagnostic Studio? It’s a tool part of the SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit. If you don’t have it yet, get it! There’s more than just the Diagnostic Studio. Other tools included are:
- Load Testing Kit
- Security Configuration Wizard manifest
- User Profile Replication Engine
- Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) connector
With all these tools you can get to know your farm even better, and tweak or adjust where necessary.
One thing I may have to point out: Run your tool as an administrator or else your tool won’t have the needed access.
