          I agree with Denis, this tool is recommended for novice admin.  You need to have very strong understanding of the BI 4 Platform, Server Sizing, Server roles and their functions.

    This blog should have disclaimer before using.

        SJ – what is the purpose of increasing the history size? is this related to how many historical activities will be recorded?

      I didn’t see a spot to comment on the blog, so I figured I’d note it here… Your blog was VERY helpful – thank you! Especially appreciate the details on the Plugins Perspective and clarifying some of the views/uses.
