About UNIX Health Check software

UNIX Health Check for AIX and UNIX Health Check for Red Hat Enterprise Linux are unique software products developed by UNIX Health Check.

It all started in 2004, when a group of Linux and UNIX enthusiasts from around the world, came together to develop a method to continuously improve Linux and UNIX systems. Many organizations and many administrators face the same kinds of issues with their systems on a daily basis, which usually can be avoided by following best practices. But that's not always easy, because there are so many best practices, so many systems to manage, many different Linux and UNIX distributions and versions, and there are many ways to configure a Linux and UNIX system. On top of that, UNIX vendors frequently release updates, and incorporate many new features regularly, resulting in more complex environments, and even more ways to configure a system.

UNIX Health Check started off as a best practice document and checklist, which resulted in more stable UNIX systems, but still meant a lot of cumbersome work for administrators. Developing software to automatically run through the check list, was the only logical next step. Nowadays, UNIX Health Check software scans systems in as little as a couple of minutes, running hundreds and hundreds of checks, often even thousands.
