Exchange 2010 - Database Continual 7MB/s Reads

Hi Experts,

We have an Exchange Mailbox server that runs multiple databases, however there is a single database that is continually running 7MB/s reads from resource monitor.

I've monitored it for a few days and it's been the same for quite some time.

There are no backups running or anything in the event log related to it doing anything maintenance wise. I've opened Exmon, however there is not a great deal of bytes in/bytes out either.

Anyone got ways of identifying what is making it use so much disk utilization?

Thanks,
Mark

Check with Usermon seems some Spamming or some user email in loop on this

Also ensure no AV scanning DB or its files and hope Disk is clear (Good Health)

Is that Mailbox or PF database. You can have only one PF DB, so check if PF db is causing this issue.
