There’s another aspect to this –what I like to refer to as the treadmill. Read this blog:
The doctor goes to medical school to learn what’s good vs. bad and how to apply that for different people, age groups, weights, etc. The doctor does not expect
the lowly treadmill to do that – nor does he even expect or trust some diagnostic monitor – he applies his skill, wisdom and insights.
BMF is just the brain dead treadmill. The doctor needs a performance tool like spotlight to begin to divine the medical facts. Right now it sound like you want
a doctor who can only read what something else tells him – and that’s not much of a physician

So the answer is no, this tool gives one numbers but those numbers are utterly useless because one is not able to easily find out what those numbers mean.
I suppose I expected that somewhere there would be something published like:
4 CPU/32GB RAM with xbrand SAN with 12 15k spindles at RAID10 and I get x throughput.
Jeez, there has to be something that tells me whether or not these numbers coming out of BMF mean, otherwise the numbers and the product are not worth much.
