Using The Health Monitor

health monitor title

The Health Monitor is the central and automated tool for monitoring and archiving the system health. Once configured, it keeps track of the performance of all Objects with Performance Counters in the system and makes calculations to help monitor and determine the overall health of the system. Whenever such an object is added to the system, it is also automatically added to the scope of the Health Monitor.

The Health Monitor automatically creates Generic Items for selected component performance counters. Other Generic Items are then also created to calculate health metrics for the system.

The Health Monitor Setup page will provide a quick guide for the essential configuration of the Health Monitor.

Different ways to display the system health status are addressed in the Health Monitor Visualization.
