Analysis of graphR. report + recommendations for improvement


€180 for members

The purpose of graphR. - - is to automatize and simplify the analysis of RVTools exports and to give a visual presentation of the information contained within one Excel export. RVTools is a VMware utility that connects to a vCenter and gathers information with an impressive level of detail on the VMware environment (e. g. on virtual machines, on ESX hosts, on the network configuration). RVTools exports are a great way to collect data on VMware environments. However, analyzing RVTool exports especially of complex environments can be time-consuming, error-prone and cumbersome.

That's where graphR. steps in. It performs statistical analysis on the data contained within the Microsoft Excel file. The dataset is visualized through some beautiful looking diagrams. Finally all tables and charts are assembled in one downloadable PDF report. Hence graphR. enables you to generate a concise report with some great graphics in order to derive meaningful insights on the analyzed VMware environment.

I started this project in 2016 and have had constant user numbers since then. For quite some time I have been thinking about the future of graphR. It is difficult for me to simply discontinue the project with the loyal users and the positive feedback I regularly receive. On the other hand I have running costs with the project. In the last 5 years I have spent a significant amount to develop the project and also to host it securely and performant. I'm not interested in earning the amount of money I spent. I would be happy if the running costs could be covered by the community.
