Anyone got any recommendations for free software to test some of our aging estate?

How well it will cope with MSO 2010 etc

Cheers.

The Evo forum really is a shadow of its former self. I remember when the internet was for the elite and now they seem to let any spastic on.

What OS is it running? Could try the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

The Win 7 advisor isn't that much cop - it will tell me that i meet the 1Ghz processor reqirement, 1Gb RAM and have 16Gb of hard drive space free.

That doesn't tell anything I don't know. I want to know how how it will run.

Synthetic tests aren't all that for guaging productivity performance - better to grab a handful of representative systems and just plain try 'em and see if they're acceptable.

Are they being reimaged? Because if not, how much cruft they have accumulated since we put 'em in :lol: will have far more of an effect than the bare system specs.

Futuremark do a 'productivity' test, but it's not very consistent and heavily favours the storage subsystems to get it's results. Which is relevant, but not as relevant as netowrk access to the files and the amount of RAM free to prevent system paging etc.
