How to Monitor the Microsoft Exchange 2007/2010 Server with Mailbox Server Role

eG Enterprise adopts an agent-based approach to monitoring the Microsoft Exchange 2007 /2010 server with Mailbox Server role. The agent-based approach requires that you install and configure the eG agent on the Exchange 2007/2010 host (if one of the 'integrated' Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010 models is being used) or on the host on which the server role to be monitored exists.

This internal agent, once started, periodically runs a wide variety of tests on the Exchange 2007/2010 server/server role to extract useful performance data. Some of these tests , namely – the Exchange Mailbox Status test, the Exchange Storage Group test, and the Exchange Queue Stats test – require Exchange Administrator privileges to execute.
