DPACK A01 1.5.3 DPACK Collector (Windows, VMware, Linux, Solaris, Unix)

The data collector is a small executable file that runs for approximately 24 hours during which time it measures disk activity and memory/CPU utilization for each server. The output of the data collector is an iokit file that can be returned to the sales team via email. The data analyzer organizes the collected data into a detailed, customer-ready report that the sales team can use to recommend hardware modifications and/or investments to improve storage solution performance.
