We’ve just released a new version of Disk Performance Analyzer for Networks (DPAN) for use by corporate IT professionals. It’s a free tool that can be installed on any supported Windows OS connected to a network (Windows-based Domain is highly recommended). From that single point you can select other networked systems and scan them for fragmentation and disk performance statistics. It provides specific details on each system as well as a high-level aggregation of systems into performance ranges.

While this functionality is already available in Diskeeper 2008 Administrator, it is now available in a free product.

Here’s a list of just some of the additions in the new DPAN:

  • Create custom groups for easy management
  • Select systems to scan through the Active Directory or IP Addresses
  • Run scheduled reports and have the results automatically e-mailed to you
  • Export performance reports to a portable and sort-able format (CSV) MSSQL database storage
