okCopy: This means you can make copies of the item.  okCopy is a better value if you might need more than one instance of the item.

Extra Backup Copies: Besides this item being okCopy, the inworld productPM store features an Express Redelivery Terminal, that will give you a few extra backup copies. Should you suffer the misfortune of a Second Life server losing your inventory, you can get more copies of your item at the productPM store Express Redelivery Terminal.

Touch server case provides this text:

Sim Analyzer: Notice the memory and video card through the Sim Analyzer window panel.  If the sim conditions are slow the memory will smoke,  causing the video card to turn red hot, creating an electrical fire within the video card. The Sim Analyzer is encased with liquid cooling and should have a fire out within 30 seconds.  Second Life measures each simulator server performance in Frames per seconds and Time dilation.  Each sim is a server operated by SL.   The Frames per second (FPS) is how fast this sim server can visually respond to your  RL computer.  45 FPS is the highest readable measure, which means the simulator is working good.  Time dilation pertains to the variation between the sciprt time and the sim server time.  The Time dilation scale reads between 1 (optimal) and 0 (worst).  Low FPS and Time dilation are commonly referred to as ‘lag’. This Sim Analyzer tests sim server performance every minute.

Genuine productPM technical support is included with this item.

Easy Set up:

Rez your Sim Analyzer inworld.  Automatically hovertext will display the sim name, frames per second, and time dilation.

Benchmark Adjustment:

Your Sim Analyzer has two adjustable performance indicator gauge settings.  One benchmark is the integer number at which the Frames per second are considered slow.  The other benchmark is the decimal number at which Time Dilation is considered slow.  You may wish to adjust the default benchmark settings to your liking.  When the sim server drops below either benchmark point, that action both triggers the visual effects, and is recorded on the daily report analysis.  Determining the right benchmark number setting is really a personal preference standard of living (What a lonely private island sim owner considers slow may be considered livable by a traffic congested over scripted multi-mall homestead owner).  To edit the Frames per second benchmark > RightClick > Select Edit > Notice the General Tab > Notice the Description field > The number 43 listed is the default, which you can change (SL responds to a range from 0 to 45).  To change the Time dilation > Select the Content Tab > Notice there is a notecard named with the default number .9859999, which you can change (SL responds to a range from .0000000 to 1.0000000).  To change the notecard name > LeftClick > Select Rename.  For both Frames per second and Time dilation zero means there is no activity, while the higher end of the number scale (45 for Frames per second or 1 for Time dilation) indicates what SL considers to be optimal performance.

Note:
If you would like to perform a test to see the side panel window visual effects, change the Frames per second benchmark higher than the range scale, to perhaps 46.  Within a minute you should see the memory smoke and video card electrical fire.  (Remember to readjust the benchmark number back lower, otherwise you will recieve a report of 1440 lag minutes with a rating of 0%).

Behaviour: Reporting
A sim analysis report can be sent to you every 24 hours.  If there were no registered lag conditions, then a report will not be sent.  In the case of Sim Analyzer, no news is good news.  So, a report is sent only when lag was recorded.  Here is an example report:

Sim Analyzer: Sim performance report. Total lag minutes today: 317.  Sim server performance rating: sim-name 78%.

That above report automatically gets sent to your avatar.  Sim Analyzer tests the sim server performance every minute.  Here 317 minutes were recorded as slow sim performance.  Considering there are 1,440 minutes in 24hrs, the percent rating is calculated from the amount of minutes that the sim worked well.  In this above example report 78% of the time, the sim was performing well.

Usage note:
On the back of your Sim Analyzer, near the bottom right, you can see a decal image of the earth globe with representative network pipe.  LeftClick this earth image to open a web browser for the official Second Life Grid Status Report page.  You will find the Linden network team reveals current SL technical problems and progress fix status there.
