Product Name: Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks
Product Version: 1.0.104
Company: Executive Software
Description: The Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks is a stand-alone utility that detects and reports fragmentation-related performance loss on networked systems. It provides this never before available, easy to use functionality all from a single location.

After installing and launching the utility, you are presented with a list of computers on your domain(s) available for analysis. Once you have selected target computers, a small agent is temporarily copied to these computers to begin an analysis. The agent quickly and unobtrusively gathers disk fragmentation information from the remote computers and reports this data to the Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks main console. The agent then completely removes itself from remote client systems.

After collecting all the analysis data, Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks will create and present a comprehensive report showing the fragmentation related performance degradation on selected remote computers.

Note: Service Pack 2 for Windows XP (SP2) contains a number of security-related enhancements to the operating system. Some of these enhancements affect the operation of certain network functionality in Executive Software's products.

Before using DPAN on systems running Windows XP SP2, be sure to refer to the information presented at www.executive.com/sp2.

Wish List

Allow blank passwords. Even though security is important some people just don't want passwords.

Allow the entry of different passwords for each workstation. Global administrative accounts can be hazardous.

History management for previously saved reports.




Over all Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks can serve as a valuable tool to administrators of Windows networks.
