WSFC Node Service

The WSFC Node service monitors the status (Up/Down/Other) of a node, or server, in a failover cluster.

This service is based on data returned from the Cluster – Nodes (PS) Automation Manager Policy (AMP), included with SolarWinds N-central. This AMP file is running the Get-ClusterNode PowerShell command to determine the status of the nodes.
