Monitoring Microsoft Exchange 2013/2016

eG Enterprise provides an integrated Microsoft Exchange 2013/2016 model, which monitors each of the core components of the transport pipeline and those that are in the periphery (eg., anti-malware/spam engine, Exchange Search and Content indexing engine, etc.), and proactively alerts administrators to current/potential bottlenecks to mail delivery.

Figure 1 : Layer model of Microsoft Exchange 2013/2016 server

Each layer of Figure 1 is mapped to a series of tests. These tests use Windows perfmon or Exchange management shell commands to pull out a wealth of performance information related to the Exchange 2013/2016 server. Using these performance statistics, Exchange administrators can find quick and accurate answers to the following performance queries:

Since the 5 layers at the bottom of the layer model depicted by Figure 1 have already been discussed in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, the sections that follow will discuss all layers above the Windows Service layer only.
