Performance Counters for Messaging Records Management

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2007-03-22

The nine performance counters described in this topic monitor the managed folder assistant as it implements messaging records management (MRM) for Exchange 2007. Because running the managed folder assistant is a resource-intensive process, you should only run it when your server can tolerate the extra load, and you should monitor server performance when the managed folder assistant is running. In addition to the performance counters listed in this topic, you may also want to monitor additional performance counters that monitor disk performance, CPU usage, and so on.

For more information about monitoring computers that are running MRM, see Monitoring Messaging Records Management.
