Introducing dbachecks

Chrissy LeMaire announces that the dbatools team is onto something big:

dbachecks is a framework created by and for SQL Server pros who need to validate their environments. Basically, we all share similar checklists and mostly just the server names and RPO/RTO/etc change.

This module allows us to crowdsource our checklists using Pester tests. Such checks include:

  • Backups are being performed
  • Identity columns are not about to max out
  • Servers have access to backup paths
  • Database integrity checks are being performed and corruption does not exist
  • Disk space is not about to run out
  • All enabled jobs have succeeded
  • Network latency does not exceed a specified threshold

We currently provide over 80 checks

Chrissy also shows you how to install dbachecks and explains the commands.

This is the biggest community-driven news since, well, dbatools…
