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 I/O and management module processes, 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.

This section describes the system health check functionality of the following platforms:
  • BlackDiamond X8 series switches
  • BlackDiamond 8800 series switches
