Hi folks, we want to keep a log of the traffic going around our exchange system to gauge quiet times etc etc. and I am trying to find a way to get some metrics for the study.
One idea was to use Perfmon to monitor the exchange servers to see how many messages are being sent around the system at any given time. We're not worried (at this stage) about the size of the messages, but want to know at a minute by minute basis how many messages are being sent. We will then log this, and create a chart to show this to Snr Mgmt.
However, I am struggling to find the correct metric to view in Perfmon, and was wondering if anybody had any ideas on this?
Answers on a postcard please,
