Maintain System Health

The System Health page displays information about the Performance Center system health (including connectivity of Performance Center components and version alignment), and enables you to run a full validation on your Performance Center system.

Tip: It is recommended to use System Health on a monthly basis to verify the system validity, as well as after upgrades and patch installation. If there is an issue with a specific host, use the Check Host function from the Hosts page.
