Viewing the Health of a Farm

Metalogix Diagnostic Manager includes the following two features that enable you to check the configuration and health of a monitored SharePoint 2010, 2013, or 2016 farm:

·The Health Analyzer lets you view any issues with your SharePoint farm performance as of the last Collection Service run.  Metalogix Diagnostic Manager compares your configuration with the set of best practices checked by SharePoint Health Analyzer. The Issue Details pane of this view allows you to view the details of an issue found by the SharePoint Health Analyzer.

You can click View Health Analyzer problems and solutions to open the SharePoint Central Administration problems and solutions page. You can click View Health Analyzer rules to open the SharePoint Central Administration Health Analyzer Rule Definitions page.

·The Farm Configuration and Health Checker, sends a request to the Collection Server to immediately update farm configuration and Health Analyzer data.
