GUI tool to monitor DFS-R’s inner-workings
[hey... you... yea you... I did write the UI! I just am not proud enough of it to share it with the world.]
Back in April of 2009, after much research into pulling apart DFS-R (which I continue to do today), I came across the WMI namespace that is polled by dfsrdiag and dfsutil.
Wanting to set up a GUI poller for backlogged files, I set out to write a .NET (C#) program that would update at a given interval. Well, to say the least, I am a novice coder; so the intricacies of writing this front end was daunting enoughthat after two-three weeks I simply gave up.
Well, a co-worker of mine just sent over a link that is exactly the program I was trying to write! Thanks to the MSFT support team in
Brazil Portugal, there is a GUI front end to dfsrdiag and straight WMI queries called DFSRMon.exe. Enjoy!
