Farm Settings Comparison

Compare SharePoint Farms, Web Applications, Site Collections, Permissions, Servers, and Web.config Files.

It’s common for an administrator to have several SharePoint farms running on similar hardware, but their performances vary due to different configurations.


Compare SharePoint Farms

Comparing farms can be critical in cases where your organization has multiple farms for different purposes, e.g. DEV / Production / QA / Staging Farms with different number of servers.

Use compare options to compare two farms or to track changes through time on a specific farm.

It does not matter if the farms are in the same domain or location, you can still compare them – find the differences and tune farm’s performance.

Snapshots – Collections of your Farm Configurations

SPDocKit crawls your environment and takes a snapshot of your farm configuration. Track changes that occurred on your farm comparing two snapshots from different points in time.

  • Snapshots can be manual (taken anytime) and automatic (run periodically).
  • Mark snapshots with good configuration settings and use them as baseline for your future reference!
