We programmers get asked questions like the following a lot from our network engineers.
- Do you know which applications are running on Server123?
- I have list of applications, windows services, queues, etc etc on Server123 .. do you know which ones are you still using it? Which ones are not used any more?
- What other servers are calling into Server123?
There must be a tool out there that could answer these questions for network engineers in terms of what is currently actively working in terms of applications, log files, queues, windows services, desktop applicaiton, web applications, web services, etc.
The tool should also be able to answer questions like which of the apps, file directories, etc. have not been touched in last 3 months, etc.
Is there a tool out there for this?
We are a purely Windows (Microsoft shop). Our servers all have Windows Server operating systems.
