Does SQL Server 2005 provide an interface that can be programmatically addressed to determine the health of a mirrored database?

If so, does anyone have examples of how to do so?


For monitoring, querying the sys.database_mirroring DMV is probably the easiest. It contains fields for mirroring_role_desc and mirroring_state_desc.

The SQL Error log also provides information about these, and there is an event you can catch with SQL Trace as well, I believe.
