Have you ever come across a rack of servers and wondered, "I wonder what those machines actually do?"

Truth be told, organizations seldom have a solid grasp on what exactly is running in their data centers and how it all works together. And that, in a nutshell, is the problem facing teams that are tasked with migrating or consolidating data centers. They need to know what a system does before they unplug it, not to mention measure the performance of the application that depends on those components as they move the system from one place to another.
