About server health tests
Use the server health tests to monitor the overall health and performance of your Exchange, BlackBerry, OCS or Lync/Skype servers. The test verifies various performance counters, services, event logs, disk space, and network availability. You can schedule the Server Health test to proactively check the status of your servers before problems occur, or you can schedule tests to run after you fix an issue to ensure the server problem is resolved.
It is recommended that you configure two server health tests - one without monitoring event logs with an interval of 30 minutes and the second for monitoring event logs that run only once a day.
The following server health tests are available for the various platforms:
