Dear all,


There is a new tool out to deal with the variety of ULS logs that get generated and are hardly accesible.

As part of the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit v2.0, the SharePoint Diagnostic Studio is delivering the following information into a single graphical user interface:


  • Base
  • Capacity
  • Performance
  • Availability
  • Usage

Moreover, it features integrated search capabilities, snapshots and a context sensitive help.


Not bad for a 1.9M download!

I hope this helps to spread the word how important BI insight in companies is in order to make timely and hard-facts-based decisions. After all, the setup of such a BI system is performed in little time and offers a great value.

Best regards,
