What is Performance Optimizer? The Performance Optimizer analyzes the performance of your McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee® ePO™) environment with a score and recommendations for improved performance. Dashboards display the results of the collected data, allowing you to drill down for more detail and to view recommendations. Assessments allow you to view details about your environment. For example, you can view information about unmanaged systems, systems with an inactive McAfee® Agent or Agent Handler, and timestamps of user logons. You can also configure Automatic Responses to send text messages or email notifications when a specific performance area requires examination.
