Does anyone have advice on using perfmon with Exch2003? I am trying to log total messages that have been processed and the Explain window doens't explan a whole lot and MS's website doesn't seem to have a lot either. I've looked at all the various monitors, but get strange reads from them. What I'm trying to do is to get a cumlative reading of (since last restart):
1. Total messages the server has processed
2. Total internal messages processed
3. Total outbound messages processed
4. Total inbound messages prcocessed
The readings I get just seem really high. For example I'm using Trend to display total total messages scanned and it seems to jack the number up by 3 for every message it scans, for internal messages I using MSEXchangeIS Transport Driver\Local Delivery and sometimes it will move 1 for one message (I test during off times) and then sometimes 3,4 or more. Does this include things like appointments tasks and such?
Any advice would be appreicated.
