The SRx Core contains a suite of tests to aid with troubleshooting a SharePoint 2013 and 2016 on-premises search farm. This package surfaces complex diagnostics in standardized PowerShell reports. Operations staff can utilze SRx Core to check for specific instances of search health deficencies.

Watch for blog posts and documentation covering each SRx test and information to run the SRx Core. Also, look for blog posts on the complete SRx which includes a search dashboard and alerts.
