In my last post I fired up the new release candidate of System Center Advisor, and this is what it looks like after I have left it running across a couple of servers I have pointed to the servers..

Just one thing to note, in my last post I introduced Advisor as “essentially Systems Center Operations Manager in the cloud” it doesn’t mean it actually is a replacement for SCOM – for a start it doesn’t  collect real time data from your servers, currently it’s just once a day. This means you don’t get the alerting and event handling that is in SCOM that makes so much automation possible.

So worth looking at if you haven’t got SCOM already, but you do then have to action the feedback the tool is giving you.
