The Get-HealthReport and Get-ServerHealth cmdlets are used to learn about the health of the Exchange Server and understand if all the services are running as expected, or if there is an issue anywhere.
Examples of Server health cmdlets:
Eg. Get-HealthReport -Identity Exchserver
Using this cmdlet you can retrieve the health information of the server named Exchserver.
Eg. Get-ServerHealth -Identity ExchServer
This cmdlet fetches health stats for server ExchServer.
Though both the cmdlets return almost the same results, they vary when it comes to the alert values they display regarding server status. Exchange Reporter Plus, an Exchange reporting, change auditing and monitoring tool does the data collection job on your behalf and offers reports about the health of of the Exchange Server. You can also configure alerts to get real-time notifications.
