How’s everything is a casual polite greeting that is used to ask casually about another person’s life.  It is used to greet a person you already know, and should not be used to greet a stranger.  The greeting “How’s everything” can also be replaced with “How are things?”  In this case, “things” refers to the aspects in an individual’s life such as family, friends, job, and other topics that friends routinely talk about with one another.
