Cloning a health test

A cloned test allows you to create a new health test based on an existing one, thus eliminating the need to create a new test from the beginning.

Viewing test results

The Management Console allows you to view the results of generated tests. You can view test results by clicking a target in the topology view or treeview, then selecting the Test Results tab.

If you click a group in the treeview, results are displayed for all targets in the group.

Colored icons adjacent to a test in the Test node, servers in the organization node, or tests in the Test Results window indicate the following test status:

Test is in progress

Test has completed successfully

Error threshold was violated

Warning threshold was violated

Value could not be retrieved

No icon

No tests are currently running

If the server is part of a group, the group shows the colored icon of the server with the worst severity. For example, if the group contains three servers: one server has a green icon, the other has a red icon, and the last has a grey icon. The group appears red.

You can hide the counters with successful results or hide informational counters to focus on the counters with errors or warnings.

From the Test Results tab, select Hide successful results from the Display drop-down.

Viewing details on test results

You can click a counter test result to see detailed results about the test per target server, such as target name and test start and completion time. You can view details about a warning, error, or an incomplete test result on the counters in any test. If the counter is not successful, the details provide a summary of the warning or error, possible reasons why the counter is not successful, and possible solutions to remedy the problem.

Browsing test result history

You can view the data of test results that has been collected in the last seven days (by default), or view the data from tests results that were collected more than seven days ago.
