I missed this post months ago. Awesome @vNote42 , thx for sharing this. Almost all the tools I often use, are already mentioned by you or someone else. I agree with @Chris.Childerhose , I use often Devolutions Remote Desktop Manager (nice tool). A small tool I also use, is Treesize Free to quickly have an overview of the used storage of a file-server or so. Some others : CrystalDiskInfo and Multiping

Hi there, one tool that I use a lot is bitvise ssh client

https://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client

it combines ssh client and winscp client,

very easy to use, you can save the sessions, etc.

I use it as an alternative of putty + winscp, also two awesome tools!

Nice tool! looks very nerd-friendly :joy:

  • Draw.io is an essential tool for me now, I use it for all diagrams thanks to the Veeam stencils built in.
  • ShareX is handy for screen recording & screenshots, has handy tools like defining “regions” and then quickly recapturing these and automatically saving them off into folders. Enables me to work on a particular task, grabbing screenshots quickly, and then annotate them in a batch afterwards.
  • Notepad++ is an extremely powerful text editor, handy for when I’m trying to amend chunks of text into something usable for automation in particular.

@vNote42 did a good post on this a while back and a lot of the tools should still be valid: What infrastructure tools do you use? | Veeam Community Resource Hub

 

But those are my top three generic IT tools I use :grinning:

Michael, I guess Kseniya knows the post already. since we are discussing in it :joy:

She has moved the post to this topic after Michael wrote that :)

Remote Desktop Manager from Devolutions. Great tool which has nearly all types of connections (for example HPE iLO, SSH, HTTP, RDP, VNC, and many more) and you can use a MS SQL or MySQL server database as a data source for the connections. This way, the entire team has access to the same connections.

Sounds good! But do not save Hardened Repository Credentials there :joy:

Of course not, that one needs very special treatment. :wink:

Hi,

 

Just wanted to add another tool to this list, found out about WinMTR today. It combines ping and traceroute, so if you’ve got a high-latency/low-throughput network or if you’re delivering Veeam Cloud Connect services and you’ve got a customer with issues backing up successfully, this tool can highlight any congested links along the way in the form of packet loss measurements.

 

It’s not perfect as you’ve got to expect some form of packet loss with ICMP, but if you see a high level of packet loss, you’ve got something that can’t just be dismissed away.

 

To use you just type in your target destination IP and it’ll traceroute against it and perform ping tests automatically for each hop.

Another great addition.  Adding it to my list of tools. :sunglasses:
