This script demonstrates how the current health of an SMS site can be determined from summary information available from the SMS Provider. The health is a summary of SMS sites, components, packages, and advertisements. The status can be one of the three values described in the following table.

Status Description


Healthy—There are no warning or error messages.


Warning—There are warning messages (but no error messages), or a threshold is approaching its limit.


Critical—There are error messages, or a threshold has been exceeded.

The following example works by inspecting the WMI class SMS_SummarizerSiteStatus. There is an instance of this class for each site within the SMS site hierarchy. This example displays the site code of each site and the current status for that site.

For additional information about using summarizers to determine the health of a site, see the SMS 2003 SDK.
