Dynamics Ax – Lifecycle Services

March 27th, 2013 by Stephen Jones Leave a reply »

Microsoft will release Lifecycle Services in the second half of 2013 which will have a system diagnostics tool available. This will looks for what Microsoft calls “the low hanging fruit”, things that could be obvious setup or configuration issues that can be easily fixed and may make a significant difference in performance; things like buffer sizes, SQL tempdb location, debugging enabled on a production environment, etc. This tool will currently only support AX 2012 and up, I have not heard any plans to support earlier versions of AX. As mentioned earlier, the tool is scheduled to be released the second half of 2013. Pricing for the service which includes a whole range of tools is currently not released, but I assume it will be tied to the level of support plan a customer has with Microsoft.
