CRM 2011 Client Diagnostics Tool for On Premise

Previously only available for CRM Online, the CRM Diagnostics tool is now released with CRM 2011 Update Rollup 4 for On Premise installations.

It runs a couple of tests, measuring latency to the datacenter/server, bandwidth, and performs a few Javascript performance tests to measure the CPU/browser performance of the machine.

You can access the tool using the following URL after you install UR4 or later.
http://<serverUrl>/tools/diagnostics/diag.aspx

The latency and bandwidth test the download speed across the wire from the CRM web site to the client browser. A low latency and high bandwidth is ideal. If your values show a high latency and low bandwidth then your CRM experience may be slow depending on the extremity of the range. For some performance reading you can take a look here.

The above documents should give you a solid understanding of performance related improvements you can apply to your Dynamics CRM deployment.

The JavaScript test items are testing your CPU/browser performance of your machine. Ideally you want low values here and upgrading your IE browser to the latest version should give you the best results.

Happy tuning.

Cheers,

CRM 4 to CRM 2011 JavaScript Converter Tool

This project is superceded by the new application Dynamics XRM Tools which includes improved features http://dynamicsxrmtools.codeplex.com/

Here I have a CRM 4 to CRM 2011 Javascript Converter tool that helps convert scripts to the latest CRM 2011 Form scripting model. The converter uses an xml file that contains CRM4 and CRM5 nodes which allow the converter to find/replace specific instances of text.

I created this as an aid to help me during upgrades from CRM 4 to CRM 2011, so if you would like to test it against your CRM 2011 javascript web resources after you upgrade from CRM 4 then let me know how it goes.

You can find the tool on codeplex here.
