hello to everyone.
 I have an exchange 2010 running, but I think the performance is very low.
How  I can optimize the performance of the database?
How I can know the size of the database?

 Thank you.

Performance issues are far more likely down to the hardware server and network
What server is exchange running on? Spec?

What performance issues do you have? Why do feel the need to "optimize"?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Some equipment is currently "hung" waiting to synchronize Outlook with Exchange.

This is usually because of the underlying I/O system is to slow to cope with Exchange. What kind of disk systems do you have? Do you have RAID, SATA/SAS/SCSI? Shared storage?

Add more RAM to the VM. Try 8/10/12 GB. Your current RAM is less than what Microsoft recommends for a server running all roles.

Now there is your problem, RAID1 with SATA disk is not very fast at all. And if you add the overhead of running it as VM, then you ask for problems. Add more disks if possible, or even run the Exchange databases on seperate single disks if you have solid recovery and backup strategy.

I am not an expert in HyperV, but you can add perfomance counters in Performance Montitor to the HyperV host and I guess you will see a lot of disk activity. Disk Queue length is one of the counters of interest.

Technet also have a lot of resources of what you need to look for:
