what kinds of metrics do you need to monitor when it comes to capacity monitoring of exchange 2010? Is it just the actual remaining disk space, or do you define thresholds for say mailbox databases/logs/anything else within exchange? Or will the databases, publoic folders, logs continue to grow until the host servers disk fills?

You should have proper backup for you exchange and after exchange backup it should be able to purge the logs.

You can use Windows Backup to purge the logs too. Please refer to the article below to see how to do it. Make sure you use the VSS Full while setting the backups.

You need to be aware of backpressure.

Exchange 2010 has soft limits of 1tb for each database in standard edition, so you should monitor the size there.

Logs - if you are doing the backups regularly then those will be flushed, so monitor the log use and be aware of what you usually generate over a three day period (ie backup Friday night, then backup Monday night).
