What kind of baseline?

+ Networking
+ IOPS and/or throughput

Or, Configuration:
+ CPU Pair
+ Memory
+ Storage and Storage Connectivity

Tools to collect that? general baseline to compare later performance..
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
SQLIO, DiskSpd, IOmeter, Exchange JETSTRESS, and there are others.

We use IOmeter for our own baseline and stress testing since disk IOPS/Throughput tend to be the bottleneck in any setup.

I see. isn't there any automated tool to do that? I'm thinking of running PAL tool to collect performance data using hyper v preset
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
There are a lot of vendor specific tools out there. Microsoft, Oracle, and others have tools designed to stress test systems for their setups.

I've mentioned the Microsoft based ones.

Greg Schultz has an amazing wealth of info on various tools to test all sorts of systems:  StorageIO Blog Tips and Articles page. His blog is also full of information on testing systems.
