  11. 11. Load Testing Toolkit (LTK)<br />Generates a Visual Studio Team System 2008 (VSTS) load test based on Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 IIS logs. The VSTS load test can be used to generate synthetic load against SharePoint Foundation 2010 or SharePoint Server 2010 as part of a capacity planning exercise or a pre-upgrade stress test.<br />Note: Only good with SP 2007 systems that you want to upgrade/migrate. <br />Talk to sponsors outside about their toolsets.<br />
  12. 12. User Profile Replication Engine 2010 (UPRE2010) <br />Provides a shared services administrator the ability to replicate user profiles and social data between shared services providers (SSP) in Office SharePoint Server 2007 and User Profile service applications in SharePoint Server 2010. <br />Note: Does not work with SharePoint 2010 Foundation<br />Talk to sponsors outside about their toolsets.<br />
  13. 13. Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) <br />The Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) connector for SharePoint Server 2010 enables SharePoint users to interact with content stored in any repository that has implemented the CMIS standard, as well as making SharePoint 2010 content available to any application that has implemented the CMIS standard. <br />This toolset has 2 features:<br />The Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Consumer Web Part, which can be added to any SharePoint page. This Web Part displays and lets users interact with the contents of any CMIS repository. <br />The Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Producer, which allows applications to interact with SharePoint lists and document libraries programmatically by means of the interfaces defined in the CMIS standard.<br />Note: This tool is not supported for SharePoint Foundation 2010<br />Talk to sponsors outside about their toolsets.<br />

  15. 15. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />What is it?<br />In essence, “The tool correlates and aggregates all the information in a SharePoint 2010 farm to present in a consistent user interface that can be used to identify problems from custom code to SharePoint itself. ”<br />
  16. 16. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />Where did the product come from? What is the background?<br />The tool originally started out as a developer tool internal to Microsoft SharePoint product team to identify bugs within the product suite.<br />Then MS IT team started to use it the same reason as the product team for deployments.<br />
  17. 17. Monitoring and Diagnostic Landscape<br />SharePoint Health Analyzer <br />(An inside look of what is going inside of SharePoint.) <br />SCOM<br />(Notifies Administrators when problems occur.)<br />Note: You can leverage PowerShell to gain insight into your system as well.<br />
  18. 18. Monitoring and Diagnostic Landscape<br />SCOM<br />(Notifies Administrators when problems occur.)<br />SPDS – 3rd Aspect<br />Presents server diagnostic information in a visual and structured way.<br />SharePoint Health Analyzer <br />(An inside look of what is going inside of SharePoint.) <br />
  19. 19. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />SPDS Presents system information in a visual and structured way.<br />How?<br />Interactive graphs, charts, export to excel <br />Depth <br />Surfaces every request across every SharePoint machine with minimum permissions.<br />This is the key to the toolset.<br />
  20. 20. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />You can run it on a client and point to SharePoint farms.<br />It will aggregate all the information from the SharePoint environment.<br />By collecting all the ULS logs from each server<br />By collecting from the usage database<br />By collecting information for the event viewer<br />By collecting information from performance counters in the farm.<br />Collects all this information in an aggregate form for users to look at.<br />
  21. 21. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />Base Reports<br />Capacity Reports<br />Performance Reports<br />Availability Reports (Key)<br />To understand your SLA helps you determine how it was met<br />Usage Reports<br />These reports are an aggregate of the SharePoint Farm. <br />
  22. 22. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />Integrated Search Engine<br />Ties in the Health Analyzer, Usage Database, TSQL to map it to an issue within the environment<br />SP 2010 supplies the correlation id for a date/time when the event occurred<br />Or search on user<br />Ties them all into reports<br />
  23. 23. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />Snapshots and Export<br />Take Farm information and reports offline<br />And it provides a summarization<br />This can be done all remotely<br />
  24. 24. SharePoint Diagnostic Studio 3.0 (SPDIAG)<br />SPDS has a set of 2 components:<br />A client application<br />Laptop or a WFE (requires minimal permission)<br />A set of server extensions that get deployed:<br />At runtime or <br />SP Admin can run a separate solutions package independently<br />Why? Provides extended diagnostic providers to surface as much data as possible for analysis.<br />
  25. 25.
  26. 26. My Take from an Admin Point-of-View<br />Microsoft suggestions you can leverage the tool for troubleshooting your farm.<br />I agree.  However, I feel you can do more.<br />My approach: To help with your future needs.<br />TechNet guides you to look at the past.<br />
  27. 27. Capacity Forecasting and Planning<br />How? Use SPDS to create Baselines to your environment(s).<br />Lift the “Fog of War.” Get a landscape of your environment.<br />The reports with timely exports can help build a landscape on what direction(s) your environment is heading towards with regards to:<br />Performance<br />WFE, App Server, SQL, OS, IIS, etc.<br />Usage<br />Insight how your SharePoint farm is being leveraged by the business to help understand what area(s) to target.<br />Unforeseen Issues<br />The timing of services and how to orchestrate them to harmony.<br />Patches that impact your environment.<br />
  28. 28. High Level Strategy for Baseline<br />So the baselining process would be:<br />Build a clean system / declare a system to be secure.<br />Create a baseline of the system in the "known good" state.<br />Engage in a healthy change / configuration management process.<br />Update system baselines after every approved change.<br />Periodically create a new baseline of the system's current state.<br />Compare the most recent baseline to the last "known good" baseline.<br />Analyze the two baselines for differences.<br />Repeat / remediate risk if necessary.<br />
  29. 29. Capacity Forecasting and Planning<br />Transform from Qualitative to Quantative.<br />By seeing trends and changes in your baselines; you know have quantative data to support your case to expand/resize your environment based upon the changes in your farm.<br />Perhaps add a new WFE?<br />Justify additional storage?<br />Think about RBS?<br />Increase SQL Server capacity.<br />Many, many other possibilities to gain insight.<br />
  30. 30. Baseline Guidance<br />Visit my blog at www.tonymaddin.com and I will post information<br />If selected; you can see me at SharePoint Saturday in Cincinnati on this topic along with Performance Tuning. <br />
  31. 31. Questions and Answers<br />Thank you!<br />I hope my approaches to SharePoint Administration can help inspire ideas in your environment.<br />
