Tools: SharePoint Health Analyzer Demystified
If you have an issue with SharePoint, or even with Windows Server, or your network for that matter, the tools that we’ve looked and discussed up until this point will give you greater depth of vision into the situation. For example, the ULS Viewer that we looked at in Chapter 9, allows you to slice and dice the logs from SharePoint, and lets you find the issues or entries related to the issue that you can use as queries in your favorite search engine. The sysinternals tools discussed in the previous two chapters, Process Explorer and Process Monitor, are the best tools to peer into a Windows Server and help you identify troublesome things that might be otherwise unexplained. And finally, the various tools discussed in Chapter 10 will give you a deeper look at IIS logging and transactions, as well as your network.
