Monitoring Exchange Servers

Hi All,

I wondered if you know of any software that is able to monitor multiple exchange servers remotely? I want to get email alerts on things like:

Queue size
Exchange Servers status

Things that would stop exchange servers working etc so that we can react to problems before clients call us!

Just a quick note we manage multiple networks so it would connect over the internet unless the solution you suggest has an agent or something.

Many Thanks

There are many softwares, expensive ones have more features.

Eg, Quest MessageStats. You can configure it to send email alerts.

Quest MessageStats is good, so are others like MOM/SCOM
If you want the cheapest option (free), then go to Performance Monitor and create alerts with script to send out mails when the threshold is reached

@Rancy - Thanks, yes It does provide realtime monitoring, years ago (maybe4 years) I on Exchange 2003 was using it successfuly for quite sometime. Where do Quest/MOM/SCOM pick up their information - PerfMon right? And when in perfmon you setup Alerts with Thresholds, they trigger the code that you will write. Yes it will take more and more time, since for every ALert you will want a seperate message and hence a bigger script. Let me dig in, I might have that scritp handy somewhere

Another great option is Opsview. The open source edition comes pre-configured with some checks for exchange including queue size etc. It can also be configured to email, txt, or RSS updates. We use it nation wide without any issues. It's built on the nagios suite, but it's a lot easier to work with since it has a nice user interface to it.
