    Any update on this being a possibility? Love Azure migrate for VMWare, but would love to be able to assess a customer's entire environment

    I work with an MSP and am planning multiple cloud migrations. This tool would be very helpful in the planning process.

    Agree that analysis of physical machines would be really useful. I'm sure something could be done to bring perfmon data into the Azure Migrate project somehow. However, a nice (hopefully!) quick win would be the ability to manually add a machine into the Migration Project, push the agent out for in depth discovery and allow us to include it is the Service Maps. I'm more interested in that than I am in getting rightsized recommendations for target IaaS VMs based on perf data, that I can adjust myself.

    This is especially important also for VMware environments where you are not allowed access to the VMware/vCenter layer, but you still need to analyse migrating them.
