Can you Import Perfmon data into MAPS and use that for analysis RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a perfmon log (*.blg) that includes all the main counters that MAPS uses (CPU, Network, Disk I/o , Memory)

    This was captured on server during its busiest time (ie high CPU) that only occurs 2-3 times a year.

    I want to feed this "worst case" data into MAPS to model how this would affect virtualisation decisions. 

    Obviously the easiest answer is to use MAPS to record Perf during this busy period but unfortunatlly don't have a time machine / don't want to wait :-)

    I could try myself using a combination of reverse engineering of SQL Schema / Relog.exe , but wondered if this had been done before ?!

  • Andy,

    This is a good suggestion.  However, we currently do not support importing of perfmon data.  Please use the "capture perfmon" function of the MAP Toolkit and then analyze virtualization candidates afterwards by using the "servce placement" function.
