vSAN Assessment Tool Update

Shameless re-post, but an important one.

The vSAN Assessment Tool has been updated.

New features.

  • Re-bootless install – In the past you had to bring a host into maintenance mode to install the collector appliance. But now, with re-bootless install, that requirement has been eliminated! Simply install and execute with no worries about creating change control tickets, or needing to wait for maintenance windows.
  • Runtime reduction from 1 week to 2 days. Who doesn’t like getting results quicker? Now, in just 2 days you can see how vSAN will benefit your environment. With a shorter duration, it is recommended to run the assessment during peak workloads to provide more accurate sizing data.
  • Key new features to actively monitor the status of your assessment while it is running.
    • Collector configuration details displaying:
      • Assessment type i.e. per VM or per Cluster
      • Whether offline or online mode has been selected
      • Configured duration for running the assessment
    • Status of Jobs – showing the total number of jobs processed while the assessment is running, the number of running jobs, queued jobs and pending jobs.
