Microsoft will soon offer the new File Server Capacity Tool (FSCT) for this purpose, and as of October 2009, it’s already available as a release candidate at The tool isn’t a planning tool: those would typically let you say how many users, shares, and so on you need to support and then generate a server specification. This tool runs on your file server and stresses it with emulated workloads, then tells you what capacity the file server can support in terms of maximum users, throughput, and response time, and tells you where the bottlenecks are. FSCT is a command line utility without a GUI, so it’s very much targeted at IT professionals and solution providers.
