Monitoring Technologies

Unified Logging Service — The diagnostic logging feature captures information in SharePoint
trace logs (located by default in the “14 hive”), Windows event logs, and the SharePoint
logging database for each SharePoint Server in your farm. The level of detail captured can
be set and controlled in the Central Administration ➪ Monitoring ➪ Configure Diagnostic
Logging page. This page enables you to specify exactly what services (and elements within
each service) to log.

Health and Usage Data Collection service — This service collates data using specific
monitoring timer jobs. It pulls together information from a wide range of sources — such as
event logs, timer service information, performance counters, site collection and sub-site metrics,
search usage, and other sources. This information is written to the unified logging database,
and can then be used to create custom reports, web analysis reports, and administrative reports.

SharePoint Health Analyzer — The SharePoint Health Analyzer runs checks (by using
predefined health rules) on servers in the farm. Any failures are written to the Health
Reports list in SharePoint 2010 and to the Windows Events log.
