I currently have a WMI script that enumerates each instance of eventID 1221 that Exchange logs after running the scheduled maintenance online defrag. There's little documentation to what the defrag is actually processing, be it the edb only, or both files as one contiguous unit (as it should be). The figures I collate from these events gives me a Mb figure, but I'm trying to correlate this information to see where the freespace is coming from.
If the freespace figure is just from the edb, how then can I find out, without taking the database offline, how much whitespace is contained within the stm?
One day my dreams will come true with Exchange hosted on SQL :-)
Thanks for your time
