Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the machine configured with the Mailbox server role.


The port number through which the Mailbox server communicates. The default is 6001.


The Exchange Management Shell is a command-line management interface, built on Windows PowerShell which enables you to administer every part of Microsoft Exchange. This test uses the Exchange management shell to run scripts and collect the desired performance metrics from the Exchange server. By default, the test auto-discovers the location of the Exchange management shell and thus, automatically loads the Exchange management shell snap-in (exshell.psc1) for script execution. This is why, the XchgeXtensionShellPath is set to none by default.

Server Name

Provide the name of the Exchange 2010 server being monitored.
