I have one of my database log folders growing in rapid size. I am trying to use the ExMon utility that I already see installed on the server in the c:\program files (x386)\Exchange User Monitor folder.

I get the message

Exchange is not running on this machine!
To view an ETL file, pass the filename as a command line argument

The version of exmon on the machine is 14.0.611.0.

How can I get ExMon to run to see if I can tell why the logs are growing at a fast rate for the last 12 hours.

I found out that you have to run the exmon.exe from the command line instead of running from windows explorer. After typing in the exmon.exe command, the program launched.

FYI. The ExMon tool showed what user was having high number of packets and bytes. I found that the user's iphone was causing the logs to grow so I removed the partnership and the logs stop growing fast now.
My environment is : Exchange 2010 SP2 and Windows 2008 R2
Fix: I had to run command line as Administrator.
