Microsoft Assessment and Planning (MAP) Toolkit 5.0: Heterogeneous Server Environment Inventory part 5


Welcome to part 5 of a 6 part series talking about a great FREE tool, which has released it’s 5th major version on Monday (7-12-2010).  The new version, MAP 5.0, has some exciting new features to help with discovery and software usage.  In this screencast we take a look at how MAP performs a network inventory of IT assets remotely without the use of agents, identifying heterogeneous server environments consisting of Windows Server and Linux operating systems, including those running in a virtual environment. MAP 5.0 also automates the discovery of Linux-powered LAMP stacks.

    As per the MAP FAQ, For Network and Disk IO, MAP tool should report the Peak values.

    In our environment, this doesn’t seem to be true, one of our Servers Average utilization is 25% based on Task manager (on a 1 Gbps network), that equals to ~20-25 MBytes PerSec.

    Whereas the MAP 4.0 & 5.0, even after 2 days of collecting data it reported as 1.xx Mbytes.

    Is there anything that I am missing.
