Hello,

We need to monitor the folder size of the Microsoft exchange server logs folder. This needs to include multiple versions of exchange and multiple folder locations.

We currently use Labtech monitoring software on all servers: http://www.labtechsoftware.com/
For example this allows us to run a script or program and then extract the results and then ultimately if over a threshold email us.  It is a very powerful monitoring tool and can run SQL Queries etc.

I have done a bit of research and the below articles I found helpful, however I need help formulating for example a script that will search for the logs folder and then check its size and display a result that can be captured.

Easiest method is contacting your labtech spokes person. They can write the script for you.
Alternatively you can modify a script which can be downloaded here, if the description of it matches your requirements

Thank you for the Feedback, modifying this script and creating it in the labtech software will do the trick.
