Answer to your feedback:

  • Where can you run this tool ?
    • You can run this tool from anywhere in your network. Because everything is powershell call and I hope every machine has windows powershell installed(in-built with OS). 
    • But if your machine/laptop in running in a Domain(let's say North America) and your SharePoint servers are hosted in a Western Europe domain, then I would recommend to run this tool in the same domain where your SharePoint servers are hosted to monitor it faster/quicker. Otherwise it will be slow because of network bandwidth.
    • But one of biggest advantage of using powershell calls is that: If you are running this tool for the 1st time for any test, it will take time as it takes, but if you run the same test again and again, it will be faster. Because I believe by the time, connection between your machine and SharePoint servers was established on the 1st test, so it only checks server objects.
  • Is there any possibility to enable Auto Refresh ?
    • Yes, I have uploaded the latest build exe (1.1) where you can find Auto Refresh feature.
  • Is there any possibility for live monitoring ?
    • There is no live monitoring, you can enable Auto Refresh feature to test on certain intervals.
    • Latest Update: Live Monitoring for CPU is ready. I will publish it very soon.
  • EXE doesn't run on my 64bit windows 8.1 version ?
    •  please change the Compatibility of the EXE file to Windows 7. Follow the link to change.
  • Alternative way, if you are somehow unable to test using excel sheet

    • you can click on Admin Panel(top right corner and put your servers with comma) to do the Test. See the steps here for your reference.
  • Didn't see a option to run as farm admin account
    • You need to hold Shift key and right click on the EXE -> Click on Run as different user -> Put your farm account credentials.
