Health Monitoring Service
You use the Health Monitoring Service to monitor Commerce Server 2009 R2 Web services installed in one or multiple sites. The Health Monitoring Service can highlight issues that cause downtime or poor performance, such as unavailable services, long response time, and security breaches.
This service takes advantage of the information in the MMC database for Commerce Server 2009 R2 so that it can obtain all the required configuration information about the sites, and which resources are available within each site.
