replication health report


I have 2 Physical Servers - 1 Hosting 5 Vms and the other one hosting their Replica.
I am using the Windows Replication Services from Hyper-v

I would like to get a daily report by email that shows me if I have any problem with the replication.
I have found many PS scripts, but got lost, some are too basic, some are too complicated..
Is there anything "out-of-the-box" ? something Standard that any IT administrator should be looking at ?

There is nothing baked in like that.

No built in reporting but you can use the Measure-VMReplication and Send-MailMessage cmdlets to cobble something together. E.g:

$report = Measure-VMReplication -ComputerName Server1, Server2 | sort preplsize | ft Name,PReplSize,LReplTime,state -AutoSize

Send-MailMessage -To a@b.com -From b@b.com -Subject "Replication Status" -Body $report

Open in new window

I do know that there are no built in reports for that but was hoping for a powershell script that can do what I
am looking for
