Using the System Health Checker

The system health checker is a useful tool to monitor the overall health of your system.

Depending on your platform, the software performs a proactive, preventive search for problems by polling and reporting the health of system components, including power supplies, power supply controllers, and fans. By isolating faults to a specific module, backplane connection, control plane, or component, the system health checker notifies you of a possible hardware fault.
