SwarmSoft SP2010 Health Rules 1 is a collection of 10 SharePoint 2010 health rules that wil help keep your farm healthy and reduce support costs and downtime. When a health issue is found, a message will be created so that issues can be found and fixed. The included rules are listed below:
A rule that checks for proxy settings on all servers in the farm. Proxy settings on the servers can create issues with communication between server web services.
A rule that checks that time zone settings on all servers in the farm. Since all SharePoint servers should be geographically near, the servers should have the same time zone settings.
A rule that checks if SharePoint is installed on Windows 2008 R2. This is the best platform to run SharePoint 2010 on.
A rule that checks if the IIS 7.5 Best Practice Analyzer has been run. Many security and configuration issues can be found by running the IIS 7.5 Best Practice Analyzer.
A rule that checks if IIS 7.5 configuration auditing is enabled. configuration auditing will track checks made to the IIS configuration. It is a good practice to enable this auditing.
A rule that checks multi server farm IP addresses and default gateways to make sure all servers are in the same logical subnet.
A rule that checks network latency between servers in a multi server farm. Latency over 180 milliseconds could cause perfomance issues.
A rule that checks that antivirus settings are enabled to scan files on upload and download.
A rule that checks that servers in a multi server farm can communicate through WMI.
A rule that checks that the minimum hardware requirements are met for each server.
Health rules are set to run on a schedule. Each rule runs on a different schedule and has it’s own severity.
