SBS 2008 - Reliability at a glance

The reliability monitor in Windows Vista is a pretty neat tool to have an at-a-glance look at how things are performing.

We have inherited that tool on SBS 2008:

SBS 2008 Reliability Monitor

The pip just prior to the MMC crash had the server at Index 9.65. The reliability index grew to that point from the install/setup days a little over a month and a half ago. The server is running on the RTM bits.

The Reliability Monitor is perhaps one of the quickest ways for us to remote or walk into a client's location and have an immediate assessment of the SBS box's stability along with any Windows Server 2008 box's stability too.

The bonus: We actually get to see the culprit causing the problems! Talk about a shot in the arm for troubleshooting infrastructure problems!

Software vendors beware! We got you covered now. ;)
