  • Compare your system processes with SharePoint best practices to streamline operations and optimize your environment. Track key SharePoint metrics including index status, network bandwidth usage, and CPU and memory consumption from a single, customizable interface. Effortlessly trend SharePoint performance metrics over time to discern optimal maintenance schedules and leverage customizable alerts based on disk space and CPU usage to proactively address issues before they affect performance.

  • Quickly and intelligently address any potential network or storage issues before they impact user experience. Receive immediate email notification if end users could be negatively impacted by SharePoint growth, usage, or activity.

  • See what happened to a document, including when it was created and by whom; who has viewed it and when; how it has evolved through versions, edits, and name changes; as well as when and by whom it was deleted. Audit reports provide insight into how content is being used and your overall SharePoint environment.

  • Grant or restrict access to report categories or specific reports, ensuring users view the data most relevant to their position. Easily remove added group members and restore broken permission inheritances immediately or in batch.
