Last week at The Experts Conference in Las Vegas as I sat on a panel, I got to see SPDiag 3.0 in action as Bill Baer answered a performance related audience question; I was truly blown away with all that this tool can do.
The ability to get detailed farm information, time splice reporting, and do all of this without creating a project in SQL Server shows just how far this tool has come. One my venture a guess that this may be the tool moving forward to support Microsoft Cloud initiatives "wink" "wink". But seriously, think about it, a portable tool with little or no dependencies, that can see right into the heart of a farm anywhere, and provide up to the minute reporting, along with metrics… this is a must have for your tool box.
