  1. Did you manage to get this tool working?

    The first 3 tabs (Collections, Virtual Machines and Provisioning) do not display any information. The last 3 tabs are working (Connections, Database and Events & Traces). It does not help that there isn’t any information available on how to configure and / or troubleshoot this tool. I guess a Diagnostic Tool should work out of the box…

    However, after all these months this tool is still in beta.
