Reading a useful Technet link here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc540464(EXCHG.80).aspx and had some questions:

1. Does anyone know if there is an RPC Perfmon counter that will display number pending RPC requests? If users were saying they were having problem, this would be a good counter to show whether the problem was on the server side?

2. In terms of any RPC Perfmon counter, is it possible to drill down to per DB? I mean, we could have an issue with just one store, but the average maybe ok because we have 49 other stores that are functioning well?

3. When using Exmon, is it possible to show/illustrate where RPC delays and what's causing it

4. Anything on the Outlook side that would show whether the problem was client related if users were experiencing slow connections to Exchange?

All for Exchange 2007.

This is not related to Outlook Anywhere, but normal Outlook access?

I'm afraid that we have a counter for the normal MAPI "Outlook access" to the exchange servers.

IMO, we dont have any counters to identify\measure the MAPI Outlook access

Reason: Based on the configuration
a) cached exchange mode
b) Delegates
c) Attached with multiple mailboxes...the number of requests\response with the exchange server(s) will vary
