Who let the DAG out?

Posted by Juliette Ollagnier on Wed, May 09, 2012

describe the imageMessaging is mission critical in today’s organizations; the Exchange server is the lifeblood of the business. IT Profesionnals face a number of challenges in the on-going day to day operations:

  • They cannot afford any downtime or end-user outages that can impact the business.
  • They need to monitor and anticipate overall usage and growth from the user perspective
  • They need to get advanced alerts that pinpoint the source of emerging issue

As a result, IT professionals are rushing to track and enhance Exchange availability and performance.

Manually monitoring and reporting your Exchange might be very long, and repetitive process.You can use some of the PowerShell commands to get a few statistics one by one, and then try to consolidate everything in an Excel file. You can use SCOM as well to gather some of the information. The problem is that these solutions are time consuming and aside from that, you can only collect statistics at a server level and cannot be alerted when a real problem occurs.
