Monitoring and Health Checking the Cluster
Updated: February 15, 2008
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
Your next step in completing the implementation of your new cluster is to enable monitoring and health checking on the entire cluster. In Installing and Configuring the First NLB Cluster Host and Installing and Configuring Additional NLB Cluster Hosts, you enabled monitoring and health checking on individual cluster hosts. Enable monitoring and health checking on the cluster before allowing users to access the cluster in a pilot or production environment.
As clients begin to access the applications and services in your cluster, continue to provide monitoring and health checking as described in Installing and Configuring the First NLB Cluster Host. Verify that the cluster performs as expected with live client traffic.
After the deployment process is complete, you should continue monitoring and health checking your NLB cluster as part of your ongoing operations.
