What’s New – 8.0

September, 2016

We proudly present the all-new SysKit 8.0! This time, we’re bringing you the features that really suit the expression “game-changing.” To sum up, SysKit now provides you with detailed SharePoint performance reports and enables you to generate automatic server documentation using PowerShell scripts. Also, you can group servers to create logical server groups, like DEV, UAT or QA, and use templates to monitor specific server roles like SQL or SharePoint!

Monitor SharePoint performance2016 R2 - 8.0

To improve the response time of your WFE and APP servers and to minimize database issues, SysKit provides you with in-depth monitoring and analysis of SharePoint performance. You can choose from an extensive list of server performance metrics and fully meet all your monitoring requirements.

Besides SharePoint, this feature can be used to monitor performance metrics on all server roles, including for Citrix XenApp, IIS, and SQL Servers.

Compare SharePoint performance metrics2016 R2 - 8.0

Compare multiple SharePoint performance metrics across multiple servers in your farms to compare their values in real time or historically. This allows you to perform a deeper analysis of your SharePoint environment and point out what is causing issues.


Customize monitoring for specific server roles2016 R2 - 8.0

Capturing the right performance metrics for the right servers is the key to successful server monitoring. Having many different server roles, such as SQL, IIS, and WFE, will require different performance metrics to be monitored. This is where SysKit can help you! Create monitoring templates and assign them to servers or logical server groups. Each template is created for a specific server role and tracks the specific set of performance metrics essential for that role.

Generate Automated Server Documentation2016 R2 - 8.0

Easily generate detailed server documentation of your entire monitoring environment with just a few clicks. This type of server documentation is essential for enabling system admins to provide support and maintenance of a server environment. More importantly, all documentation reports can easily be compared to audit any changes made.

SysKit allows you to create PowerShell scripts on servers, and generate reports on any data available through PowerShell. This is a great way to automate repetitive tasks! Reports can be exported to Excel or PDF, so you can create presentable server documentation for your end clients.

Split monitoring environment into fractions2016 R2 - 8.0

A monitoring environment with a large number of servers is hard to track and maintain as a whole. Use SysKit to group your servers into multiple logical server units, simultaneously splitting the monitoring environment into smaller fractions. You can assign each of your servers to a custom group and generate reports solely for the targeted logical server units.

Restrict actions to specific server environments2016 R2 - 8.0

Often, you need to apply a specific action to specific server environments only. With SysKit you can perform an action on, for example, QA servers, while UAT can remain unchanged. This makes the overall system administration much less risky by ensuring that you won’t apply an in-test patch to a Production server group.
