Monitoring the Exchange Client Access Server (CAS) 2013/2016

The Client Access server provides authentication, proxy, and limited redirection services, and offers all the usual client access protocols: HTTP, POP, IMAP, and SMTP.

To monitor the Client Access Server inside-out and bring abnormalities in its operations to the immediate attention of administrators, eG Enterprise provides a dedicated Microsoft Exchange CAS 2013/2016 monitoring model.

Since each of  the layers above and the tests mapped to them have been discussed elaborately in Chapter 1,  this chapter will not be repeating the same.
