Server Performance Analysis
Dell performance Analysis Collection Kit
CMS Live Hosting is pleased to now be offering Dell’s secure, DPACK solution, giving us the ability to offer a broad range of industries the chance to analyse key metrics and ultimately make informed decisions.
Our knowledgeable and friendly team are on hand to offer advice and guidance throughout the process, and will happily help each step of the way.
DPACK (Dell Performance Analysis Collection Kit) is a tool that allows us to record, visualise and therefore collaborate with others to enable data-driven decisions. By using sing DPACk we can fully analyse current usage statistics through the installation of a single, small piece of software designed to run for a 24-hour period to measure key metrics.
How does it work?
DPACK’s Collector streams performance data to an Online Analytics Engine that crunches workload characteristics from popular operating systems and virtualisation environments. We are then delivered this data in an easy-to-understand visual summary, allowing more accurate analysis.
DPACK’s collector will begin a point-in-time capture of one or more server activities. The collector supports remotely recording multiple servers from a number of different platforms for between four hours and seven days.
Once data is collected it is then streamed or uploaded so that it can be visually explored in near real-time by accessing the online Viewer, which supports phone, tablet or browser, allowing quick access to the graphs and calculations supplied by the DPACK analytics engine.
The majority of businesses will make decisions in teams, or in coordination with manufacturers or their partners. The Viewer platform allows the secure sharing of performance insight between those involved in a decision cycle.
