The System Center Health Monitor role monitors system entities such as servers, roles, units, and client applications for health issues. Health events are recorded in a database for reporting and statistical analysis. Recent system errors are reported in real time in the notification tray for the application. Only one instance of this role is permitted per system. It is created at system installation and cannot be deleted.
The Heath Monitor role can be configured to identify which health events to monitor, ignore certain health events, and change how it generates some health events. To ignore all health events, deactivate the Health Monitor role completely. To temporarily ignore the health events for an entity to perform maintenance work on it, set it to maintenance mode.
The process of setting up and configuring a system can generate many health events. It is normal that health errors and warnings are produced during this time. After you initially set up your system, you should reset the health monitoring database to a clean state to reset the health statistics of your system.
