Get-MailboxStatistics

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-28

Use the Get-MailboxStatistics cmdlet to obtain information about a mailbox, such as the size of the mailbox, the number of messages it contains, and the last time it was accessed.


Get-MailboxStatistics [-Identity <GeneralMailboxIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]


Get-MailboxStatistics -Database <DatabaseIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>]


Get-MailboxStatistics -Server <ServerIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

To run the Get-MailboxStatistics cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

On Mailbox servers only, you can use the Get-MailboxStatistics cmdlet without parameters. In this case, the cmdlet will return the statistics for all mailboxes on all databases on the local server.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Database

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.DatabaseIdParameter

The Database parameter specifies the name of the mailbox database. When you specify a value for the Database parameter, the Exchange Management Shell returns statistics for all the mailboxes on the database specified.

You can use the following values:

  • Server\StorageGroup\Database

  • Server\Database

  • Database

This parameter accepts pipeline input from the Get-MailboxDatabase cmdlet.

Server

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.ServerIdParameter

The Server parameter specifies the server from which you want to obtain mailbox statistics. You can use one of the following values:

  • Fully qualified domain name (FQDN)

  • NetBIOS name

When you specify a value for the Server parameter, the command returns statistics for all the mailboxes on all the databases, including recovery databases, on the specified server. If you do not specify this parameter, the command returns logon statistics for the local server.

This parameter accepts pipeline input from the Get-ExchangeServer and Get-MailboxServer cmdlets.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.GeneralMailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies a mailbox. When you specify a value for the Identity parameter, the command looks up the mailbox that is specified in the Identity parameter, connects to the server where the mailbox resides, and returns the statistics for the mailbox. You can use one of the following values:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • Legacy Exchange DN

  • SmtpAddress

This parameter accepts pipeline input from the Get-Mailbox cmdlet.
