Capturing your existing server specifications and utilization with Machine Stats
If you’re just starting out on your migration process, don’t miss Tidal’ Machine Stats.

And it works on all unix-like systems as well as Windows!
Learn how to use Machine Stats with this hands-on tutorial, with just one click through your Google Cloud account.
If you have any questions on how you could use it to quickly collect data in your next migration project, we’re happy to chat.
