Exchange server monitoring features

Exchange monitoring services

Exchange Server depends on certain critical services for proper operation. The first step in ensuring Exchange availability is to monitor these critical services with a potent exchange server monitoring tool.

OpManager's exchange monitoring tool monitors the following critical services:

  • Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) that transports electronic mail across the network.
  • Exchange Information Store (IS) that manages Microsoft Exchange Information Storage.
  • Exchange MTA Stacks that provide Microsoft Exchange X.400 services.
  • Exchange Routing Engine that processes Microsoft Exchange routing information.
  • Exchange System Attendant that provides system related services for Microsoft Exchange.

The unavailability of the aforementioned services could impact the performance of your exchange server and so exchange server monitoring becomes vital.

OpManager monitors exchange information store

Exchange's Information Store (IS) serves email requests within a particular Exchange Server domain. Problems like information store thread spending a lot of time looking up an account security identifier (SID) in the Active Directory directory service or the IS intermittently stopping to respond can occur and hence monitoring exchange is crucial.. By continuosly monitoring the IS & configuring thresholds, such situations can be avoided.

Monitor exchange queues and connections

A growing queue of connections/active connections is a sure indicator of trouble. A growing queue may mean that the Exchange server is under attack from spam. The number of connections can grow too if an Exchange Server malperforms & fails to close the connections. A potential blockage can appear due to a large number of queues and/or connections which will cripple Exchange's performance. Hence monitor exchange server and by monitoring queues & connections will help identify such bottle-necks early on. And OpManager's Exchange performance monitoring helps identify this through setting up of thresholds & notifying you of the imminent failure.
