The hard-working monkey provides currently two little Drush commands to check and fix fields with default values in node entities.
For example when you add later a field to a content type and have existing nodes of this type, the existing nodes get this field entity with it's default value only on node save into database storage. This behavior can cause problems for views, etc.
The hard-working monkey do this job for you. You can check and fix existing fields with this little monkey.
