Hi,

I have the script below that generates an email when a queue goes over 100.

#Get Queue data from transport servers
$a = Get-TransportServer -identity ***** | Get-Queue | Select-Object MessageCount | ?{$_.MessageCount -gt '0'} | Measure-Object MessageCount -sum
#If the queue is higher than the number set below, send email, if not , exit.
IF ($a.sum -gt 100) {
$emailFrom = "exch.queue@***.com"
$emailTo = "mon.team@***.com"
$subject = "Exchange Queue Alert"
$body = "Current Email Queue: " 
$body += $a.sum | Out-String
$smtpServer = "****" # Replace with your SMTP Server IP
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$smtp.Send($emailFrom, $emailTo, $subject, $body)
EXIT
}
ELSE {
EXIT
#EOF
}

Works well. I also need to add nexthopdomain and identity to the body of the email along with messagecount. I've tried this but I still only get messagecount.....

#Get Queue data from transport servers
$a = Get-TransportServer -identity ***** | Get-Queue | Select-Object Nexthopdomain,MessageCount,Identity | ?{$_.MessageCount -gt '0'} | Measure-Object MessageCount -sum
#If the queue is higher than the number set below, send email, if not , exit.
IF ($a.sum -gt 100) {
$emailFrom = "exch.queue@***.com"
$emailTo = "mon.team@***.com"
$subject = "Exchange Queue Alert"
$body = "Current Email Queue: " 
$body += $a.sum | Out-String
$smtpServer = "****" # Replace with your SMTP Server IP
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$smtp.Send($emailFrom, $emailTo, $subject, $body)
EXIT
}
ELSE {
EXIT
#EOF
}

Any help, or better way of doing this would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Are you looking for Nexthopdomain's which has queue count greater than 100 or just all Nexthopdomain's from the server?

Just to clarify... As per your current script, you are getting alert if the total queue count is greater than 100. So I guess this is a separate alert and you need to get alert only if the Nexthopdomain queue count is greater than 100.

#HTML head
$a = "<style>"
$a = $a + "BODY{background-color:White;}"
$a = $a + "TABLE{border-width: 1px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;border-collapse: collapse;}"
$a = $a + "TH{border-width: 1px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;}"
$a = $a + "TD{border-width: 1px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;}"
$a = $a + "</style>"

$Result = Get-TransportServer -identity "HUBServer" | Get-Queue | ?{$_.MessageCount -gt '100'} | Select-Object Nexthopdomain,MessageCount,Identity

IF ($Result) {
Send-MailMessage `
-Subject "Exchange Queue Alert" `
-Body $($Result | ConvertTo-HTML -head $a | Out-String) `
-From "exch.queue@***.com" `
-To "mon.team@***.com" `
-SmtpServer "SMTPSERVER" `
-BodyAsHtml
}

Open in new window



Without any HTML formatting..
$Result = Get-TransportServer -identity "HUBServer" | Get-Queue | ?{$_.MessageCount -gt '100'} | Select-Object Nexthopdomain,MessageCount,Identity

IF ($Result) {
Send-MailMessage `
-Subject "Exchange Queue Alert" `
-Body $($Result | ConvertTo-HTML | Out-String) `
-From "exch.queue@***.com" `
-To "mon.team@***.com" `
-SmtpServer "SMTPSERVER" `
-BodyAsHtml
}
