Overview
The PAL (Performance Analysis of Logs) tool is a powerful tool that reads in a performance monitor counter log and analyzes it using known thresholds.  A template is created from the PAL tool and imported to the server’s Performance tool as a new counter.  This includes relative BizTalk and SQL metrics that will be tracked.  The resulting blg files are analyzed by the PAL tool and thresholds are applied once questions are answered regarding number of CPU, memory, etc.  A report is produced by the PAL tool in an easy to read format with graphs.  Tallan will use this information to make recommendations for performance improvements.
