Microsoft SharePoint Administration Toolkit v3.0


So the other day Kelley Vice announced a new SharePoint Diagnostics tool (http://blogs.technet.com/tothesharepoint/archive/2009/02/05/3197739.aspx) to help many of us with SharePoint reporting capability and adminstration. This was added to the new version of the SharePoint Administration toolkit found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=412a9ef1-3358-4420-b820-0ca3f4641651&displaylang=en (x86) and here:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=be58d769-2516-43cb-9890-3f79304528ff&DisplayLang=en (x64)

With SPDiag v1.0, you can:

  • Collect IIS and ULS log files, performance counter data, event logs, and WMI instrumentation data from a SharePoint farm.
  • Filter data to show granular information related to specific servers, Web applications, HTTP requests, event IDs, URI queries, and almost any other data points captured through supported channels.
  • Create custom reports that can help reveal performance trends over time.
  • Create snapshots of your SharePoint farm that include detailed information about your farm’s hardware, installed software and logical topology.
  • Export collected data and reports that can be sent to Microsoft support personnel.

For those not familiar with the SharePoint Administration Toolkit here is a short listing of it’s features:

  1. MSI Switches and Arguements (WSS and MOSS)
  2. User Profile Replication Engine (MOSS only)
  3. Batch Site Manager (WSS and MOSS)
  4. Updatealert stsadm operation (WSS and MOSS)
  5. SP Diagnostics

Hope you download and enjoy the use of the tool,
Richard Harbridge
