APPLIES TO: yesSQL Server noAzure SQL Database noAzure Synapse Analytics (SQL DW) noParallel Data Warehouse

Troubleshooting resource health issues identified by a SQL Server UCP might include mitigating overutilized CPU on a computer or on an instance of SQL Server, or mitigating overutilized CPU for a data-tier application. Other issues might include resolving overutilized file space for database files or resolving overutilization of allocated disk space on a storage volume.

Note that if a database is in "emergency" state, the health state will display overutilized log file space.
