    <blockquote>SPSReport, which is very similar to PSS MPSReports for other products/technologies, collects a ton of information from the <a title="" href="http://www.microsoft.com/office/sharepoint/prodinfo/overview.mspx" target="_blank">SharePoint</a> Portal Server machine on which it is run;&nbsp; that information includes:&nbsp; event logs, metabase/IIS settings, hotfix lists, MD5 sums of relevant directories, important registry entries, etc., etc., etc.&nbsp; The download contains a readme file that contains all of the various information that it collects.
    <p>SPSReport can be used on SharePoint Portal Server 2001, SharePoint Portal Server 2003, and Windows SharePoint Services, and will gather a slightly different set of information depending on the version.</p>
    <p>The tool can take quite a while to run, depending on the configuration of the machine, so it should not be taken lightly.&nbsp; That said, if you can afford the time (the readme suggests "anywhere from a couple of minutes to over an hour") and the performance hit to the machine (again, this will depend on the configuration of the machine) this is a great way to get a whole lot of information stored off into a CAB file for review at a later time.</p></blockquote>
