Monitoring With PowerShell and Consul

Getting Started I recently read this article, Consul for Cluster Health Monitoring, and was interested if I could use this to execute PowerShell based health checks. Consul has a Win32 build so it seemed reasonable despite there being no Windows examples in the documentation. Here’s the command I ran to start up a Consul server. Ideally, you’d want a few of these in each physical site and then a Consul agent on each node.
