Exchange related information is gathered from the Exchange Servers and other data sources like Active Directory, Message Tracking Logs and Outlook Web Access Info (IIS) Logs. This data is gathered with the help of scheduled data gatherings configured in the product. Scheduled gatherings are data extraction procedures, which require privileged user credentials corresponding to the type of gatherings done. These privileges are provided either when a new Exchange Organization is added or when a new scheduled task is created.
Once these scheduled tasks are created (from the Admin Tab --> Task Scheduling option), the product automatically collects the data at scheduled time intervals and stores the data into an in-built postgresql database.
When a user selects a report in Exchange Reporter Plus, it queries the product database, and provides tabulated and graphical representation of this data.
