Exchange Server Monitoring Means Less Troubleshooting

Fixing email issues is time consuming without having full visibility into Exchange Server

Predicting storage performance

Lack of visibility into storage performance and insufficient IOPS prevents Exchange from sending and receiving mail.

Predicting mailbox database capacity

Without alerts to database capacity limits, storage volumes could run out of available disk space, causing an Exchange failure.

Proactively spotting mail storms

Without alerts, it is difficult to identify mail storms caused by apps, databases, and viruses.

A single view of Exchange Server performance for faster troubleshooting
  • Comprehensively investigate Exchange server issues
    View your entire IT infrastructure and drill into any component affecting Exchange health.
Plan for mailbox database capacity
View mailbox database size including volume usage, transaction log size, and file size. This helps determine overall capacity constraints. You can drill into individual mailbox details to determine if a large mailbox should be moved to another database to load balance capacity.

Automatically collect stats and get alerted about issues so you can troubleshoot with real-time and historical performance data.
Proactively identify storage performance issues
When storage volumes run out of available disk space, it leads to issues where Exchange can’t store additional emails. Planning your disk storage for Exchange server is critical because high disk latency leads to performance issues.

For optimum storage performance, it’s essential for admins to consider:
  • • Deploying high performance disks and spindles.
  • • Selecting the right RAID configuration.
  • • Improving performance by aligning your disks.
  • Stay ahead of mail storms
    Mail storms can come from applications, viruses, and large email aliases. By monitoring all aspects of Exchange (the Hub Transport Server, Mailbox Server, Edge Transport server and the CAS) you can receive alerts about issues in advance, before Exchange stops working.
    Quickly troubleshoot user mailbox issues
    Instead of running a script to find usage details for a specific user, you can find user details by typing the user’s name into the search bar in the Users By % Mailbox Quota Used widget. Within seconds, you can troubleshoot the user’s issue. Drilling into the user’s details, you can view the number and size of mailbox attachments, mailbox synced devices, and sent/received mail trends, which can indicate a spam issue with the user’s account. With this information, you can also report on user mailbox details to clean up the mailbox database.

    QuoteCompared to SCOM, it’s much easier with SolarWinds SAM to create custom monitors and application models, and monitoring and reporting Exchange status is greatly improved."
