The vRealize Automation health service assesses the functional health of a selected vRealize Automation virtual machine.

IaaS administrators can configure the health service to run tests that assess the health of a selected vRealize Automation virtual machine. The tests determine if the components are registered and all the necessary resources are available. The following table shows the test suites that the health service provides and some example tests in each suite.

After you run a test suite on a virtual machine, the health service provides feedback about the number of tests that passed or failed. For failed tests, the health service provides the following information:

  • The cause for the failure.

  • A link to information that you can use to remediate the problem.

You can configure the Health Service to run tests on a schedule or only on demand.

Tenant administrators with a Health Consumer role can view test results for their tenancy but cannot configure or run a test.
