Status System

SMS generates status messages to report the activity of components on site systems and clients. A status message is a text string, generated by a component, describing a specific activity performed by the component. In addition, each status message contains important information such as which component generated the message, the exact time that the message was generated, and the severity of the message.

Status messages are sent from clients and site systems to the site server and are stored in the SMS site database. You can then view status messages in the SMS Administrator console. Viewing status messages in the SMS Administrator console helps you monitor the activity of the various components, determine the health of SMS, and identify issues that might require your attention.
