This presentation provides an overview of the SMC Applicability Tool (SMC-AT).

SMC-AT was created to help you evaluate the applicability and value of SMC-R and SMC-D in your environment with minimal effort and minimal impact. SMC-AT is integrated within the TCP/IP stack (via PTF) and will gather new statistics that are used to project SMC applicability and benefits for the current system. SMC-AT does not require any special hardware.
