I am new to HP, can you give an example of the type of issue that tool will check for/report on? is it a dedicated healthcheck type tool? does it produece a summary report of any issues identified? is it free as part of the hardware purchase?

HP SIM is a infrastructure reporting and live monitoring application for all HP equipment. It will report on all aspects of the hardware including BIOS revisions and will allow for easy patching of hardware.!tab=features
