The performance of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is affected by many factors. These include the number of users who are synchronizing with Exchange ActiveSync, the types of mobile devices that are synchronizing with it, and how much data each user synchronizes between the Microsoft Exchange server and the mobile device. By using monitoring, you can understand the factors that affect the performance of Exchange ActiveSync. You can examine Internet Information Services (IIS) log files and use the Export-ActiveSyncLog cmdlet to generate reports in comma-separated value format. You can also create several graphs from the data in these reports to analyze traffic and usage patterns.

By monitoring Exchange ActiveSync errors and events, you can understand problems that your users encounter when they synchronize their mobile devices with Microsoft Exchange.
