While monitoring Exchange server, I noticed that the AVERAGE TIME FOR LOCAL DELIVERY in the EXCHANGEIS object in performance monitor continuously shows a very high value (60). This basically indicates a problem in the information store. How can i correct this ?
Configuration : Exchange server 5.5 with SP2 on Winnt4.0 SP4. No.of mailboxes 1100.

It could be that the information store has become framented. You can use a Exhange utility called ESEUTIL.EXE to help with this problem. Also if you use Exchange Optimizer to provide the best locations for the Exchange databases and LOG files which helps with performance.

I had about the same problem with about half as many mail boxes.  I upgraded using the SP3 and my Local Delivery times went back to about 3

the patch is available of course from microsoft.  But I found the downloaded files to be buggy.  I ordered the CD but have also found it in htis months issue of MSDN CD's.

I'd have to agree with alisdair. eseutil.exe is a great little utility. The first time I ran it on our exchange IS, it reduced it's size by (no joke) 60%! That was only after about 1000 mailboxes and a year's worth of use. Here's the article from Technet:

Of course, upgrading to SP3 is probably a good idea too. :)
