As partners and end users move to a simpler Capacity-base licensing model, the Veritas™ Capacity Assessment Tool is designed to easily and quickly identify the amount of data to protect in an environment.
How does the Veritas Capacity Assessment Tool work?
The tool is a standalone, executable that can be run from almost any Windows x86 or x64 system. Microsoft server and desktop operating system platforms are supported.
(Note: Microsoft .NET 4.0 must be installed)
After running the tool, the user simply selects the machines for which data capacity should be calculated, and then starts the assessment process.
The tool is capable of scanning the contents of the local server on which it is being run, as well as the contents of other remote servers that are available on the network. This includes scanning multiple remote servers concurrently.
How does the Veritas Capacity Assessment Tooldisplay results?
The tool generates a report after completing the assessment process. The report is designed to be user friendly and very easy to read, highlighting Total Used Space and Total Capacity in Terabytes from the assessment.
A ‘quick view’ is provided as soon as the assessment process completes. The user also has the options to switch to full view mode or to save the file for later reference.
