Fishbowl Solutions has released version 3.0 of linkTuner, an out-of-the-box solution for PTC Windchill PDMLink and Pro/INTRALINK. This new version provides a more robust architecture that eases deployment across sites and cluster environments, and includes improved reporting options, the company says.
The solution uses Creo to simulate one or dozens of Creo users to test a company's PDMLink environment and help them understand possible issues related to Creo-Windchill system interaction. It compliments the PTC System Monitor (PSM) by running and rerunning scenarios to allow administrators to observe PSM metrics and gather additional data and insight.
It can also be used in conjunction with the PTC Data Management Performance Benchmark Test data set to automate the actual runtime and data collection that this test requires.
"Our customers understand that you can't manage what you can't measure," said Rick Passolt, business development manager at Fishbowl Solutions. "linkTuner is a unique solution that offers a variety of usage scenarios allowing companies to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to system performance. It empowers administrators by providing empirical data and not fuzzy feelings about system performance."
