Checks the state and availability of a Cluster Service

Invoke-IcingaCheckClusterHealth checks generally for the state of the Cluster, i.e. it checks if the Cluster service is running properly, the state of all Cluster Nodes and all Cluster Resources like “Task scheduler”, “Clustername” etc. If the Cluster Main Server fails, the check is automatically CRITICAL, because then the cluster is no longer available and the cluster service is Stopped.
