I used exmon to find many users who were utilizing over 50-75 percent of CPU with an active sync account. The IP addresses were from outside of our environment and not from an exchange server which would represent internal users. I also saw huge logged bytes sizes 6 and 7 digits long with logged in bytes and logged out bytes.

I am looking for a tool and how to do this to pull a total report of logs and disk space they have utilized over a certain portion of time. I have learned that iphones can cause a lot of  log creation and database growth but not necessarily effect the size of the users mailbox just the DB. Can someone assist me please, thanks

If mostly external accounts are affected, have a look at your firewall and the capabilitties to log traffic.
But in general. While i.e, Outlook can cache content in a local file (offline folder) other solutions cannot. So if they acces their mailboxes. it can produce a lot of snychronization traffic as th ewhile content of a mailbox (resp. inbox) has to be snychronized.

Nevertheless, even Outlook as a client - used on a remote system - can produce a huge amount of replications traffice. I see this on the counter of my mobile connection devices, which can even cosume about serveral 10 MB just to sync my mailbox.

At the end, it depends even from the size of the mailboxes and the synchonization settings, what items are synchronizied. Within the Sync settings you usually can define, which items (time an volume) is synchronized and this varies from "only headers" to full sync. So if setup in the wrngh way, a mobile device sync the whole mailbox with all attachements or only a defined part of the email.

To get rid of such traffic, most of th epplications, which use Active Sync supports settings, to reduce the snyc traffice, i.e only 14 days or aonly headers or just a limit of size.
