Hello,

I created a new data collector set with a performance counter alert in order to monitor exchange queues. As in the action tabe you can't send directly an email I choosed to write an entry in the application log in order to attach it to a task to send it via email. I tested with several counter, like \MSExchangeTransport Queues(_total)\Aggregate Delivery Queue Length (All Queues) or even others which are always above 1 or even 10 and if I set "Alert when above 1 or 10" no entry are added to the application log...
Am I missing something somewhere?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello,

The alert will only fire when the event exceeds your threshold. If the queue is above the threshold when you configure the alert, it will not fire until it goes below the threshold then exceeds it again.

I started the performance counter alert when the value was at 1 and the threshold at 5. Then it went often above 5 but nothing in the application event log. Am I missing to do something? Do I have to also create a normal performance counter in the data collector set?

Sorry, I forgot to precise that I'm on Windows Server 2008 64 bits and the alert design is completely different, there's no way to directly send via email, that's why I'm trying to first add an entry in the application log and then based on that attach a task to send the log.

It's exactly what I've done... I use the Active Remote Queue Length and sould add an entry in the application log when above 18. I started it, went to system monitor to monitor this coutner in real time, it was at 16 and then when it went over 18, nothing happens. Am I looking at the wrong application log?

As I had no answer, I scheduled scripts that check queue length and send email alert.
