The Red Bull "Analyzer"... Is it actually *this* bad?
From the Workdomosphere blog by David DeWell (modchaos): Microsoft Application Analyzer has my official FUD seal...
After looking through the Microsoft.Exechange.AppAnalyzer.DataCollection DLL I see absolutely no methods or functions reading design in this application. All the DataCollection is doing is reading the database header information. Being the disbelieving soul that I am, I restarted my machine with the SoftIce suite. Re-Ran the Analyzer and pulled up Softice during the "Data Collection" stage. Much to my surprise, there are functions that I missed that are being called that access the database. With method names such as "StartDataCollection" and "StartDataImport" I thought maybe I had missed so methods looking through these DLLs when it dawned on me that SoftIce was not lying that they returned null values. There is no code in these methods. They do NOTHING. So, after confirming that this application just gets header information with SoftIce, I pulled out my trusty HexEditor and scanned through the DLLs looking for clues and verified what my DLL search had brought to my attention.
Since David provided a trail as to what he did, this information should be verifiable. And if true, it proves *exactly* what the Notes community has been contending all along. The tool is useless and is nothing more than a smoke screen released to coincide with Lotusphere.
Redmond, your turn to counter. Let's see if you can come up with less than four official answers this time, huh?
